5.0 out of 5 stars A dog's view of life, love and racing cars, 10 July 2008
This review is from: The Art of Racing in the Rain (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This hilarious yet moving story has all of the epic elements of life, death, love, betrayal and loss but what makes it unique is that it is narrated by Enzo, the family dog. From his unique canine perspective Enzo describes the idyllic life he leads with his owners, Denny and Eve, until it is devastated by illness. Enzo, wise beyond his doggy years - which of course are seven of ours - describes the events that unfold as the family tries to cope with Eve's cancer diagnosis and the fall-out from it. The title is a reference to Denny's passion for Formula One driving which has many similarities to life itself. If you love dogs, cars or the concept of triumph over adversity this book will tick your boxes. It's a cross between Love Story and Marley and Me with some Kramer v Kramer thrown in along the way. I read it in one long train journey and loved every second.

I agree this really is an interesting read, at first I was not sure if
I was going to get into a book that was narrated by a dog. But I
found myself completely absorbed in the story of Enzo Denny and Eve
it is so different to anything I have read before a real page turner.

I have found myself looking at dog's in a completely different light.
