Book Review: The Art of Racing in the Rain: My Life as a Dog
A story told from the POV of a dog? What a silly concept!
never read something like that. But then a friend whose opinion I trust recommended
it, so I got the Kindle sample and immediately upon
finishing the sample, I ordered the book and just kept on reading. I
couldn't put it down and didn't want it to end.
It's a touching, sweet
story with Enzo, the sensitive and perceptive dog, as a reliable and
engaging narrator. What a creative device!
Beautifully written, characters you root for, and a dog you want to take home. Even if you're not a dog lover.
Read this book!
