One of my best friends read and adored this one, and has been telling me to read it for months now, so I finally did. While it didn't blow me away, I definitely enjoyed reading it.

The art of racing in the rain is about life as a race, life in a race and a race for life. The story is uniquely narrated from a wise dog's point of view. It is beautifully written and will likely stay with me forever!

Not the best written book ever, but sweet and worthwhile

This was a wonderful book that made my heart smile. Enzo the dog is one of the best characters I have met in a long time.

This book could not have been any better.
