“The Art of Racing in the Rain” by Garth Stein, is told from the point of view of Enzo, a dog of indeterminate heritage, who longs for opposable thumbs. It is his memoirs of auto racing, life and love with his human companion Denny. I’m not a big car racing fan and sometimes books with animals talking are too, too precious. Not this one. I alternately laughed out loud, blubbered so hard I couldn’t see the words on the page and the most ugly part was when I wanted to find a couple of “evil twins” to smack because I got so annoyed with the “villains” of the story. In short, I give it two paws up!
