The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein


This is a unique book in that it tells its story from the perspective of an unlikely protagonist– a dog. Enzo is a dog like none other and his master, Denny Swift, an up and coming racer, is navigating the twists and turns of life, living and existence. This is an emotional story that feels more like a quiet train ride while the rain is lashing outside than a bombastic race with twists and turns. Fair warning, you might shed a few tears, but it is totally worth it. The Art of Racing in the Rain is a solid book with a great plot and gripping characters which will keep you turning pages until its very satisfying end.
