The Art of Racing in the Rain

The Art of Racing in the Rain - Garth Stein 4.5 stars

Enzo is a dog, much to his annoyance. He believes that when he dies, he will be reincarnated as a man and be able to voice his opinions and use thumbs just like he's always dreamed. But for now, he resigns to be a loyal companion to his master and his family. This novel chronicles the life of Enzo and the family that he is raised in. His master, Denny, is a good man that is sucked into a world of legal persecution, betrayal, and incredible loss. Enzo is forced to merely sit on the sidelines and watch as Denny's world falls apart and he turns into a shell of his formerly optimistic and vibrant self.

I expected to cry going in; it's a dog book. But I wasn't expecting to cry after ten pages. Seriously, Garth? Why would you do this to me on a Monday morning?
