‘The Art of Racing in the Rain’ by Garth Stein


“Gestures are all that I have; sometimes they must be grand in nature”
This captivating and moving story is all about Enzo and his struggles to bring his family back together when they almost fell apart. 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. Have you ever looked at a dog and wondered whether there might be more to him that meets the eye? Well, Enzo is different from other dogs, he is almost human. With life’s unexpected twists and turns, he sees that life, like racing, isn’t simply about going fast.
As he is giving his life, he remembers what he and his beloved family have been through. As Enzo heads into the light, hoping fervently to return as a smooth skinned man, he knows that for him at least the race to save his family has been won. This book has everything: love, tragedy, redemption, danger. The old soul of Enzo has much to tell and teach us about being human. This story is actually about gaining custody of Enzo’s master Denny Swift’s daughter Zöe from her manipulative grandparents after the painful loss of Denny’s wife Eve.
At last, the charges applied to Denny were dropped. It was a miracle that the troublemaker herself recanted. Within 48 hours, Denny got back the custody of his daughter Zöe. They were back again but, Enzo’s leaving them, his body, and this whole world to come back as an human.

Hope you will look forward for the book!!
