The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
My mom recommended Garth Stein’s novel, The Art of Racing in the Rain, to me. When I started the book, I was skeptical because I do not normally like the books she recommends, but I figured I would give the book a shot. After the first chapter, I was hooked. The book is written from the point of view of a dog, which is an interesting change from books I normally read.
This book is good for anyone who is looking for a story that tugs at the heartstrings. I was unable to bring the book to read at school because the story was so sad, and I often cried or felt like crying when reading it. This book is also great for anyone interested in racing because Stein uses a lot of racing analogies.
