6. The ‘I never knew a dog could narrate a book and bring me to tears’ novel
“The Art of Racing in the Rain” by Garth Stein, 2008
Garth Stein’s debut novel “The Art of Racing in the Rain” is the only book told through the eyes of an animal that we have ever read, and it’s so good that we want to read it again. The book chronicles the lives of Enzo (named after the Ferrari supercar) and his owner, Denny Swift, and the journey that they go through from puppydom with a bond that is strengthened through death, self-discovery, and the creation of a family bond that proves unbreakable. This one is a tearjerker, so keep some tissues handy.
