If you ever wondered what your dog may be thinking, then this novel The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein may give you a surprising insight.
It’s not easy to write from the point of view of a dog, but it seems Garth Stein has mastered it. His novel about a dog named Enzo (who’s impossible not to love) is heart wrenching and powerful while remaining down-to-earth (just like Enzo) accessible. If you’ve ever loved a dog and had that true connection with one, expect to be moved with laughter and tears. And if you happen to also love racing cars, you’re in for a wild treat.
The Art of Racing in the Rain is a lovely reminder about our faithful four-legged friends and how in so many ways they can teach us what’s important.
