5 stars for The Art of Racing in the Rain

Not just another dog story

Enzo the dog takes us, the readers through his life with a personal and endearing point of view. He creates the scene from a dogs eye view, with great intelligence as if he graduated from more than just obedience school. He feels he is as human as any dog can be. Enzo is dedicated not only to his family, but to us the readers, as he keeps us on the edge of the track explaining how Denny never gives up no matter how many obstacles are placed in front of him for the sake of his family.

Enzo's dedication can only bring him great reward in the end and perhaps his wish that he is"ready" for what is next. What is Enzo ready for? You will have to read and find out. You won't want to put this one down.
