Book Review: The Art of Racing in the Rain
By Garth Stein
Book Review by Cindy Z
The Art of Racing in the Rain had intensely captivated me within the first five pages of the novel. Under the perspective of a dog with a complex mind, we experience his souls which dealt with distress, loss, and affection. Stein has unconditionally developed an immense suspense; within the book, the reader will develop fondness for the dog and without doubt, tear up with a surge of sympathy and compassion. His life is a race, a life packed with life lessons to become a champion to complete a race; it emphasizes on the ability to overcome the deadliest obstacles. We observe the resilient dog’s soul travelling through our world taking say in what humanity is incapable of. You wouldn’t stop reading until you’ve reached the very last page; overwhelmed with the new atmosphere Stein has created, allowing us to accept a new interpretation of the world.
