If you like horses, you probably like dogs, then this book is a must-read. I enjoy most books I read, some very much. Occasionally one will strike me as exceptional and this was one of them. You'll want to hug your dogs after reading this; maybe ask them for some advice too.
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is an imaginative and endearing story; cleverly narrated by a dog named Enzo, a terrier/lab mix. Enzo shares intelligent and humorous anthropomorphic observations on life; meeting adversity with hope and courage. I got a kick out of his optimism and desire for opposable thumbs and human speech. For me, it wasn't a gripping page-turner, but a very charming, sweet-read that I wanted to savor. I downloaded the eBook from the library. One third of the way through I decided to purchase a copy because it is a keeper.
