The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

I feel that I and this book was love at first sight. However, it took me years to read it because back in 2008, my access was minimal, so I would read any book I was given. So as soon as I got a copy, I knew I wanted to read it, especially since this book is coming out as a movie this year, so without further ado, here are my thoughts.

This book is written from the view of the dog, at the start of the book, Enzo is a pretty old dog, and he knows that his body is giving up on him. We get to read how he met his owner to the highs and lows of family. Enzo felt very much like a human. It certainly felt like he was the glue of the family with a passion for racing cars just his owner.

He has one dream, and that’s to evolve into a human, but he can’t share them because he is a dog. It reads very humanly even if it’s from the eyes of a non-human. It feels that Enzo was what made Denny succeeded in his career as a car race driver. Enzo was Denny’s life guide in a way. I gave this book a five of out five stars and its one of favourite books that I read in 2019.
