Garth Stein’s novel The Art of Racing in the Rain is such a wonderful read. An emotional tale told from the perspective of man’s bestfriend; Enzo has learned much from watching TV with his human companion, specifically race car races, and now he is ready to share his wisdom with others. He begins his tale from the end of his life and works backwards to the beginning, talking to us about love, loyalty, and the strange habits of humans. Enzo tells his listeners that dogs come back to earth as humans since they are man’s closest companion, and he knows this is what is in store for him after death. Stein does such a great job of having his readers crying and then laughing as they get to know Enzo and his life. This is the perfect read for animal-lovers and anyone looking for a warm, uplifting story.
