The Art of Racing in the Rain

I just finished listening to this on CD this week:

It took me about a week to listen to the whole book, lots of interruptions since I listen while I quilt.  The Art of Racing in the Rain is not an all time favorite, but I did enjoy it.  Parts seemed hokey to me, but much of it was fun, or sad or profound.  Some parts made me cry.  It hit me pretty close to home on the issue of death and dying.  The book is told from the dog’s point of view.  And there is alot about car racing.  More about car racing than I cared to know…. but that’s ok.  It really does help the book in the long run.

Ok, so I’m no book reviewer.  Just know what I like and what I dont.  I would like to get this book when it comes out in paperbook and actually read it rather than listen to it.  I will say this about the audio version…. the man reading was excellent.  You can hear a clip of him reading on the link above.
