The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

This was our January 2012 book and it was wonderful! Many of us are animal lovers and so we could really relate to this book and it's unique style of being written by the dog, Enzo.
This is a story about a man named Denny who is a race car driver and the hardships that he must endure during the time he was Enzo's owner. I don't want to give any of the story away to a prospective reader but I can tell you that it's about perseverance, courage and strength and it will leave you with a whole new way you might look at your pets in the future!
As in many books written about dogs lately, it does take place during Enzo's life, so we can assume already that tears will fall! Please don't let this discourage you from reading it. Truth be told, I would have read this book over a year ago but my hesitance to read anything that may be sad about a dog stopped me. I am glad it was our January pick and we all highly recommend it to you as well!

Note- I thought it might be fun to start mentioning at the bottom of each review what we had for dinner...I mean we all love food and this could give you some good ideas for your next get together!!
