    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    FanB14 says: "Artful Surprise"
    "Great Storytelling from the author and narrator."

    Story

    The Art of Racing in the Rain has been beautifully constructed. Every moment in the story builds towards another, until you find yourself completely engaged in the story, and its characters.
    The voice of the narrator (Christopher Evan Welch) is perfect. He doesn't put too much emotion into his voice - instead letting the words 'take over' - and not making the emotion in the story seem tacky and clichéd.
    Definitely worth listening to, just don't listen to it while you have low blood-sugar. (It can get slightly 'tear-jerky'...)
