Urban Dog Book Club
Call to Action
Last week I wrote about “Books About Dogs.” The post met with a degree of enthusiasm that surprised me a bit!
Because of that, I thought we’d try to have an Urban Dog Book Club. I’ll choose a book for you to read and include your opinions or comments about the book in a post a month later.
The first book is The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. You have until May 1 to read it. Have your comments to me by then.
Here’s a brief excerpt from a review on the Kirkus website.
Stein (How Evan Broke His Head and Other Secrets, 2005, etc.) uses a dog as narrator to clever effect in this tear-jerker about an aspiring race-car driver who suffers more woes than Job but never mistreats his dog… Pointedly inspirational.
The whole review is a bit spoiler-y, so don’t read it if you want to read the book with no knowledge of the plot points.
