Book Buzz! Racing in the Rain

The Art of Racing In The Rain. I read this book yesterday. That’s right. Yesterday. Started it in the morning, finished it by the end of the night. That’s how good it is!

I’ve heard about this book from a few people; my sis-in-law, Bridget, (at least I think it was Bridget) etc. Everybody said how good it was, especially if you’re a dog person. And especially especially if you have a dog.
This story is told from Enzo’s (the dog’s) point of view on the eve of his death. Yes, it’s emotional, but well worth the read. He tells the story of his life living with his owner, a racecar driver, and family. This book is so well written and confirms my theory that my dog REALLY understands what I’m saying to him and all the events going on around him. Yes, he’s still an animal, but he understands human actions and emotions. Maybe you don’t agree, but maybe you do. : )
I even let Tango sleep in bed with me last night because I felt even more connected to him that I did before… Until he eventually got over not having any room and left for his spacious and warm kennel. Fine Tango, fine.
But if you’re looking for something wonderful and a fast read, pick it up! Amazon has it for $1.88! And even better, your Public Library has it for free! Which is better. Unless you’re like me and can’t possibly find a way to return it on time, in which case your $5 late fee might be more… Happy reading!

  2. Can’t wait to read it! I’ve heard good things all around and I’m definitely in the mood for this kind of story right about now. Though I love the crazy good Amazon deals, I’m a library kind of girl… you just can’t beat free! Thanks again for the recommendation!
