The Art of Racing in the Rain

By Garth Stein

A story about an amateur car racer and his struggles to keep his family intact, told from the perspective of his dog, who has aspirations to become a human in his next incarnation. The book is very readable and though at time it felt a bit too new-agey, it wasn't too bad. I guess when the new-agey individual is a dog, it's okay. I expected the dog to be more egocentric, but I guess, he was so selfless because he was a dog, not a cat. Same could be said of his admiration of his owner. Overall, a pleasant read, and at times tear-jerking. [321 pp.]
