We all need a dog like Enzo

I read The Art of Racing in the Rain a couple years ago and loved it. Check this out while I work on my review of A Sudden Light!

I loved this book. It’s a touching family story told from an original point of view.  Denny Swift is the main character, a husband and father – a family man.  His dog, Enzo, tells Denny’s story and gives us simple insights into love, misunderstanding, pain, and loss. He cleverly narrates a sad story and leaves the reader feeling all right about the very difficult job of saying goodbye to the people (and pets) we love. Enzo is a true hero in the way he influences and communicates with Denny, Eve and his family.

You don’t have to know anything about driving a racecar or even be a NASCAR fan to enjoy the connection Stein makes between being a champion behind the wheel and taking charge of your own destiny.

This is a fast read with a solid feel-good ending.

  1. This is one of my favorite books ever. I keep it on my special book shelf for only the best books. It reminded me so much of my pooch and how I always say my daughter is the reincarnation of her. 😍😍😍
