The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The Art of Racing in the Rain is narrated by a beloved dog named Enzo. Yes, it is narrated by a dog. This was a book club selection and I was pretty skeptical to say the least. Don't get me wrong, I am a dog lover, but a book narrated by a dog? Seemed a little sketchy to me! The book takes you on a journey of Enzo's life with his owner(s). The dog reminded me of an old soul trapped in a dog's body. Throughout the story, the dog has much to say about life and how us humans tend to ruin things without even knowing it.
The book is about love, loyalty, tragedy, and fate. As I read this book, my dog Bugsy had to be at my side. I began to look at Bugsy and wondering . . . . . . hmmmm. This book is for anyone who loves dogs and loves a good story.
