"The Art of Racing in the Rain" by Garth Stein

In his book "The Art of Racing in the Rain", Seattle author Garth Stein weaves a fantastic tale narrated through the inner voice of a dog as he observes the life challenges faced by his intrepid owner. Through this looking in on family heartbreak and challenge, the dog/narrator provides insightful life lessons that in many ways... only a dog could.

While this is probably not a book that will resonate with all, it's lyrical and deep in meaning nature is sure to appeal to many... particularly those who love both wisdom and dogs.
