The Art of Racing in the Rain – Garth Stein

Typically, there is the women’s point of view and then there is the man’s point of view but that is until this novel came along. The Art of Dancing in the Rain is told in the point of a view of a man’s best friend as you follow along his lifelong journey. Enzo educates himself through the words of the television and his owner in order to better prepare himself for the afterlife of a human. Reading in the perspective can make you take a step back and see what human life is like in the eyes of something so selfless.

As a reader, I normally stick to the over dramatic love stories and this novel was far from that. This novel was a great read and one that will stick with me forever. The best part about this novel was how realistic and spot on every single detail was in regards to Enzo. The creativity from the author gives us this heart wrenching story based off of what we all imagine about the thoughts and feelings of our pet.


That which you manifest is before you.
