I listened to the audio CD of The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein and loved it.   It’s a story that is told from the point of view of the main character who is a dog.  The story opens when Enzo is at the end of his life.  Enzo relates the story of his master, Denny who, after adopting Enzo, marries, has a child and begins his auto-racing career.  Enzo is with Denny through the unexpected death of his wife and a three year custody battle for his daughter.  Enzo learns about human life and how Denny’s racing knowledge applies to many life issues.  It’s an emotional story with laughter, tears, love and hope.  Check our catalog
