Default The art of racing in the rain.

Has anyone read it? I just picked it up Friday and I am interested to read it. It seems like a really good book!

Amazon.com: The Art of Racing in the Rain (9780061537936): Garth Stein: Books

I have read it. Good book but a bit sad. Not what I would usually read but told by a dog. So i got it and couldn't put it down. I have read hundreds of books and only I handful have made me cry, this is one of them.

I loved it. It was a great story.

Enzo is named after the dog in the book!

Im so anxious to start reading it now!

I read Marley and me and I cried, but sometimes a good cry is refreshing.

I found this book while searching books on Amazon. :]
I wasn't able to order it, but I can't help but think about the little bit I read every now and again! I want to read this book!
It's good to know it is in fact worth the read...Yes?
