The Art of Racing In The Rain, a novel

The Art of Racing In The RainI have been reading and rereading a book that I didn’t think I’d like as much as I did.  It was given to me by a friend who read it and said somewhat the same thing.  It is a book that grew on me… after each reading I would think, “whatever” and then I couldn’t stop thinking about it.  I kept coming back to it.  I stayed up and read it for 3 hours straight one night!!  And I reread it in it’s entirety after I finished it the first time. 


Who knows.  I liked the “voice” of the narrator.  It made me think of things in a new way.  It made me cry and cry about the dogs I have loved and miss terribly now that they are gone.  It gave me hope.  It was a good story.

So, for what it is worth, here is my recommendation: Read Garth Stein‘s The Art of Racing in the Rain
