The Art of Racing in the Rain: Garth Stein
“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.”
Rating: 5/5 (it was amazing)
I can’t even put into words how much I loved this book. Before this book, I think I have cried only in a handful of books in my life — and friends in this book I cried at least twice and teared up more times than I could imagine. Maybe this book was exactly what my soul needed, but I don’t know, I just felt such a kindred spirit to this book. The book is narrated by the house dog, Enzo and he reminded me so much of the puggle, which is probably why I cried so much. Not only was this a beautiful story, it also had so many great life lesson quotes. If you are looking for a heartfelt read, this book is for you.
