The Art of Racing in the Rain
The Art of Racing in the Rain | Garth Stein
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.

Is a nice story. Enzo is a great narrator and I read the book in a flash. Nevertheless is a predictable story and I am not a fan of racing so....

This is the next book for our book club. I‘ve heard I need to buy a box of Kleenex to use as I read this book . It‘s already starting to make me cry as it opens with a quote from Ayrton Senna. One of the best Formula 1 🏎 racing drivers ever. His death in 1994 at the Sam Marino Race in Italy was truly a sad day for racing fans. He was ONE of the best.

A good quick read. Engaging story, but wasn‘t very enjoyable for me. The lawsuit was very stressful and hit a little too close to home (but hey that‘s good writing). Also I was constantly wondering why Enzo was so excited to be human all while noting flaws of humans. I got a little resolution on that front during his thoughts in the final chapters! I cried a lot and this book was emotionally draining for me. #BFLS

4/5
Okay, I cried my eyes out. I may be biased because I am a big animal lover, especially dogs. And I know some may think this book is silly because it‘s in the POV of a dog. But, I don‘t care. This book made me laugh and cry. It made me appreciate my little buddy even more and for that I am grateful. If you love dogs, animals or just want to read about love, I recommend! My heart is full. ♥️

#LitsyWalkers @kaye

Rain, wind, cold - I haven't read the tagged book, but not losing my hat and keeping my hood on my head while walking uphill against the wind made me think of this book.

Now it's sunshine and puffy clouds outside, but physiotherapy wiped me out. (Further improvement of my walking style is needed - got the rolling, now I need to concentrate on the tilt in the pelvis and not drawing my shoulders up to my ears.)

RachelO Wow! It‘s complicated! But yay for getting the rolling 👏👏👏👏 5mo
julesG @RachelO Actually, I can do the rolling well when I'm walking outside and don't have to pace myself down to another person's stride, it's indoors that I tend to ignore all about it. 5mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The first book to make me cry!

This was truly a remarkable book that had me experiencing joy, anger, sadness, excitement (I love racing, so knowing some of the places and the terms was cool!) all in one great story. There are so many great lessons to be learned from Enzo, the dog who narrates the story, and his family. Highly recommend!

And sometimes an old soul of a dog can perhaps teach us more than humans do. In this sad, beautiful and wonderfully written tale one finds a solace that resonates within you. A terribly touching story of love, kindness, family, loss, perseverance and of course racing in the rain. A perfect read for quiet, quiet afternoons.
P.S: Be ready with a box of tissue.

I‘m kind of meh about this book. I mostly listened to the Audible version with narration by Christopher Evan Welch, which was mostly good, with a pointed exception for the godawful Italian accents in the last chapter. The story is poignant with moments of humor, and I did like the central conceit of a dog narrator. But there is more I hated than what I enjoyed- animal death, a brush with statutory rape, false rape accusations. Would not recommend.

“[On TV] I learned about other cultures and ways of life. They talk a lot about Darwin. I don‘t understand why people insist on pitting the concepts of evolution & creation against each other. Why can‘t they see that spiritualism & science are one? That bodies evolve and souls evolve and the universe is a fluid place that marries them both in a wonderful package called the human being. What‘s wrong with that idea?”

Did anyone get through this without tearing up?

Enzo watches from his furry POV as his owner & friend, Denny, marries Eve, who births Zoe, and he tries/fails to alert the family of disaster brewing in Eve's body. Enzo's musings frequently curse his inability to speak (& lack of thumbs) which may have kept him from saving her.

The idea is so simple/sweet: to get an in-depth look on relationships between man & wife, man & child, and man & dog. 🤧

I begrudgingly read this book after it was recommended to me because I was told it would make me appreciate my dog more than I already do. I swore off books like this after I read Lily and the Octopus. I didn‘t completely break down with this read, like I feared. I really enjoyed the dog as narrator and it definitely makes me wonder what mine is thinking. I really want the perspective portrayed in this book on dog death to be true. 🐾❤️🐾
