I’ve never read a book written by a dog. Obviously, they can’t write.
They don’t have thumbs.
A friend brought me a copy of the book: The Art of Racing in the Rain.
We share a love of dogs. All breeds, all kinds, all canines may apply for a space in our heart. He, in fact, is The Dog Artist. Whimsical, bold, dogs painted on canvas that portray their personality in detail. Even a quick sketch captures the love factor of your best friend.
And so back to this book.
The author composes the chapters as if the main character, a dog named Enzo, is telling the story. And Enzo does a great job of it.
I fell in love with not only the storyteller (Enzo), but his master and family as well. In typical review cliche, I can honestly say “I laughed, I cried, I wanted to know more” about this story.
It was a quick read for me; about two days of spare time from start to finish, and it was worth every minute.
