Description

Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver.

Through Denny, Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition, and he sees that life, like racing, isn't simply about going fast. Using the techniques needed on the race track, one can successfully navigate all of life's ordeals.

On the eve of his death, Enzo takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through: the sacrifices Denny has made to succeed professionally; the unexpected loss of Eve, Denny's wife; the three-year battle over their daughter, Zoë, whose maternal grandparents pulled every string to gain custody. In the end, despite what he sees as his own limitations, Enzo comes through heroically to preserve the Swift family, holding in his heart the dream that Denny will become a racing champion with Zoë at his side. Having learned what it takes to be a compassionate and successful person, the wise canine can barely wait until his next lifetime, when he is sure he will return as a man.

A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope, The Art of Racing in the Rain is a beautifully crafted and captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life . . . as only a dog could tell it.

    This was one of those books that you read in one sitting. Such a sweet story, especially if you’re a dog lover.

    It was ok. Good ideas about how your dog may think. Tragic story, good ending tho.

    For school this book was on my summer reading list. I was going to pick another book, but I’m glad I didn’t. This book was amazing. There is simply no other way to put it.

    It’s a beautiful book that will carry you through a world of emotions- best view from the point of the dog. Hands down one of my all time favorites

    This was a good book. I kept coming back every chance I got but it wasn’t a fresh concept. Marley and Me and A Dog’s Purpose were books from the dog’s point of view.
  • Great book!
