The Art of Racing in the Rain

Click here to read more about the author.
By the title, I would have expected it to be a novel about my races for the past year ;-)

While on Audible.com I noted that Andrew had 32 credits.  So I have been using them up..... thus the 'can't get enough' audiobook kick.

If you are a dog lover (or a Formula 1 lover), you HAVE to get this book.

It is a story of a dog's life told by Enzo the dog.  Enzo shares his perspective on people and the human condition.   He talks about his life and death.  Racing in the rain refers to race car driving. Click HERE for an eloquently written, more in-depth review.

Please note:  If you are sensitive when it comes to animals, I warn you..... you will be crying in the first few pages. I do not recommend running while listening to the book (as I learned yesterday during my 18 miler)..........  It's very hard to run when you are sobbing and gasping for air.

I am generally not an outwardly emotional person but, for whatever reason, I crack when it comes to anything about animals dying or being abused (especially dogs).  I can't even listen to Sarah McLachlan's ASPCA commercial without welling up (stopping animal cruelty commercial).

Some other Audiobooks I have listened to.......
Awesomely funny!

Funny and entertaining.
 I couldn't read or listen to the whole thing. I tried to like it.  Not my cup of tea.
 Awesome concept.  The power of the Law of Attraction.

Just started this.  you really need to be focused when listening to this or you'll miss out.
I've got lots more in my queue.

Do you listen to audiobooks? Or do you prefer reading?

Gotta run.
