The Art Of Racing In the Rain by Garth Stein
What an amazing little book, the best part being the story being told from the viewpoint of a dog. For anyone who loves or has ever loved a dog, and wondered about their thought processes, this book offers a touching, sad, and often very funny possiblity. Denny is Enzo the dog's owner, and Enzo chronicles Denny's life through a particularly tough stretch and past it. As the person who recommended the book to me said, "I believe in the philosophy of this book."; which, to me, reflects how life gives us situations, for better or worse, but it is up to us to choose how to deal with it.
