The Art of Racing in the Rain: a very short review

One of the things about traveling, and about 10 hour trans-Atlantic plane flights in particular, is that you have a lot of time to read.

So I recently read Garth Stein's The Art of Racing in the Rain.

I envision that the author's thought process must have been something like this:

I know: what if I wrote a book from the point of view of the family dog?

That is, I'll have the dog be the narrator!

Hmmm... I'll need to have a story for the dog to tell.

Perhaps the story isn't all that important, because the interesting part is that it's told by the family dog.

Well, anyway, there you go.
