Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver.
Review by @Kirsty Rowan: We Need to Talk About Kevin - Sweet Jesus, make sure you're steeled up for this one. Shriver will mercilessly stick in her claws, rip out your heart and throw in a sizeable dash of nausea for good measure. That said, this is a brilliant novel, raw and powerful and will leave you feeling exhausted. Make sure you have tissues and a stiff drink handy when reading.
