different than anything I've read before - I like it but it pulled at my heartstrings ( )
  LadyHMac | Oct 23, 2021 |
And unexpected gem of a book! It's funny here, serious there, intriguing in another place, and a downright tear-buster in another. This book will grab your emotions as well as your mind and you enter, unbeknownst to you, into a philosophical experience of the human life through the eyes of a dog.

While, as a Christian, I do not share the religious premise the book seems to espouse, nevertheless, I recommend it as a different way of thinking and experiencing what we all go through in one degree or another, at one time or another. ( )

Not nearly as sappy as you would expect a book narrated by a dog to be. Enzo is a wonderfully realized character with a beautiful voice, who's love for his family is immediately apparent. Seeing the story through his eyes is more heartbreaking, I think, than the eyes of one of the humans, simply because almost everyone can understand the endless loyalty and love of a dog and understand what he's going through as his family suffers.

Story told from the perspective of a dog, of Denny, a race car driver, and his family as they encounter the trauma of his wife's untimely death. The dog is of course a racing fan, and heaps on the metaphors between racing a car and life. Quick read, with some good insights. I didn't love the story itself, culminating in a nasty and depressing custody battle that was hard to read when things were going bad for the hero. Maybe if I myself were a car racing fan I would have liked it more. It was a bit long for me- I think there could have been less padding of the story.

But I am a dog fan, and the "dog saves the day with his love" trope is OK with me, and was very poignant.
Not a book that will stick with me much, but a decent read. ( )

A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope—a captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life . . . as only a dog could tell it.

If you've ever wondered what your dog is thinking, Stein's third novel offers an answer. Enzo is a lab terrier mix plucked from a farm outside Seattle to ride shotgun with race car driver Denny Swift as he pursues success on the track and off. Denny meets and marries Eve, has a daughter, Zoë, and risks his savings and his life to make it on the professional racing circuit. Enzo, frustrated by his inability to speak and his lack of opposable thumbs, watches Denny's old racing videos, coins koanlike aphorisms that apply to both driving and life, and hopes for the day when his life as a dog will be over and he can be reborn a man. When Denny hits an extended rough patch, Enzo remains his most steadfast if silent supporter. Enzo is a reliable companion and a likable enough narrator, though the string of Denny's bad luck stories strains believability. Much like Denny, however, Stein is able to salvage some dignity from the over-the-top drama.

“I savored Garth Stein’s The Art of Racing in the Rain for many reasons: a dog who speaks, the thrill of competitive racing, a heart-tugging storyline, and--best of all--the fact that it is a meditation on humility and hope in the face of despair.”

To live every day as if it had been stolen from death, that is how I would like to live. (pg 160; first harper paperback published 2009) ~ Enzo~

She died that night. Her last breath took her soul, I saw it in my dream. I saw her soul leave her body as she exhaled, and then she had no more needs, no more reason; she was released from her body, and, being released, she continued her journey elsewhere, high in the firmament where soul material gathers and plays out all the dreams and joys of which we temporal beings can barely conceive, all the things that are beyond our comprehension, but even so, are not beyond our attainment if we choose to attain them, and believe that we truly can.

In Monglolia, when a dog dies, he is buried high in the hills so people cannot walk on his grave. The dog's master whispers into the dog's ear his wishes that the dog will return as a man in his next life. Then his tail is cut off and put beneath his head, and a piece of meat or fat is placed in his mouth to sustain his soul on its journey; before he is reincarnated, the dog's soul is freed to travel the land, to run across the high desert plains for as long as it would like.
