Thomas | 9 comments Has anybody read "The Art of Racing in the Rain"? I am flying to CA on Saturday and want a good book to read on the plane.

Sera I read this one a few years ago. I loved it - 5 stars for me. It's pretty sad, though.

Thomas | 9 comments Thanks...Don't spoil, but almost all dog stories end up qwith the dog departing this life. By the way, if you are a dog lover, you might want to read,"The Divine Life of Animals" by Ptolemy Tompkins. Besides having a great name, the author propses some very interesting ideas about the animal after life.

Jonathan Cullen (cullister) | 2 comments I didn't see a welcome topic for new members so I jumped on this one just to introduce myself. I'm a lawyer in-house in Canada. My reading habits are mostly sci-fi/fanatsy/horror but I love the classics and am sorry to have missed your Lolita discussion, I was reading it around the same time.

Sylvia | 13 comments Hi. I am also a new member in the group. I am a lawyer at a small firm in Denver, Colorado. "The Art of Racing in the Rain" is a wonderful book. The narrator Enzo is one of my favorite characters in recent books. There is even a little bit of courtroom drama in the story. I have given a copy of it as gifts to several of my close friends and family.

Sounds interesting, Thomas. I'll make note of it. And Sylvia, I agree that Enzo is an amazing narrator. I absolutely loved the story.
