Imagine a more dramatic Marley and Me written from the dog’s perspective and you get The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein.
A friend of mine picked it up at Starbucks and said I had to read it. He was right! As a dog lover and owner and a fan of Formula 1 racing, I connected with the book. I clearly recalled most of the Formula 1 races and events mentioned in the book. Moreover, the story is incredibly touching. In many ways it reminded me of Will Smith’s The Pursuit of Happyness given the uphill struggle Denny faces during the entire book. I don’t think I cried as much in years. I was balling reading it on the train from Port Washington to New York!
Read it, you won’t regret it!
