The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein Told from the perspective of a race car driver’s aging dog, the book is packed with so much heartfelt human insight. I still can’t reread it without tearing up. It’s a beautiful, wonderfully written book.
I couldn't put this book down. Jeannette Walls is an awesome writer and keeps you engrossed in this book! Her next book "Half Broke Horses" (which precedes this story) is also a great read. The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeannette Walls
When Harold Fry nips out one morning to post a letter, leaving his wife hoovering upstairs, he has no idea that he is about to walk from one end of the country to the other. He has no hiking boots or map, let alone a compass, waterproof or mobile phone.
