There are a lot of good things in this book. It has some narrative problems, too. Enzo, as the narrator, is probably the most interesting part for me. He's an outsider in large parts of the story, and so he narrates with detailed observations. Sometimes, Stein shows Enzo understanding very well what's going on around him; other times it's an intentional inability to understand that highlights his distance from his human family. It's fun to imagine what a dog might think of just about anything. Enzo's perspective on the story's events and characters ties the whole narrative together.

On the downside, for me, it sometimes felt a bit like watching a movie with the color turned up way too high. The challenges in Denny's life aren't just difficult, they're abysmal. Check off nearly every possible thing that could go wrong, and it does. Then, in a too-sudden turn at the end, he finally achieves resolution and rides off into the sunset. After the trials he went through, I don't object to the happy ending. I just wish it had been foreshadowed more effectively and tied into the story more closely as it developed. As it was, it felt like it just dropped in out of the sky at the end, and I couldn't enjoy it the way I really wanted to.

Enzo, the dog, and his owner Denny have a special bond. Enzo dreams of becoming a human in his second life. He understands human behavior and learns about many things by watching tv when left at home alone. This is a really good story about Enzo?s faith in Denny and Enzo?s support to him during his years of dealing with the many obstacles that are placed before him.

I've avoided reading this book for years despite so many people telling me that they enjoyed it. I saw the dog on the cover and pictured something that just wouldn't work for me since I'm not a huge pet person and am pretty indifferent to dogs overall.

I found it to be a charming POV and a nice little page turner. Easy to read and perfect to read as I was traveling.

A good start to the new year. ( )

Thank you to author Garth Stein for telling Enzo's story. It provided me with plenty of food for thought and reflection on life and death. It's full of inspiration and comfort. Enzo is a kind and wise soul.

Thank you also for introducing me to Denny, Zoe, Eve, Mike, Tony and Luca. They are good people. There's others in the story that I won't mention because I can't say anything good about them. When you read the book, you'll recognize them and know that they will have to face Enzo's King Karma.

Enzo forever! ( )

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.
