The Art of Racing in the Rain

The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

Gestures are all that I have; sometimes they must be grand in nature. And while I occasionally step over the line and into the world of the melodramtic, it is what I must do in order to communicate clearly and effectively. In order to make my poinr understood without question. I have no words I can rely on because, much to my dismay, my tongue was designed long and flat and loose, and therefore, is a horribly ineffective tool for pushing food around my mouth while chewing, and an even less effective tool for making clever and complicated polysyllabic sounds that can be linked together to form sentences. And that’s why I’m here now waiting for Denny to come home-he should be here soon-lying on the cool tiles of the kitchen floor in a puddle of my own urine.

  1. This one sounds good! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I loved the book and am on the fence about seeing the movie. I may wait until I can watch from home.

  3. I’ve always meant to read this!

  4. I haven’t read this one but the perspective is certainly unique!

  5. Nope for me. I can’t read animal books. Even funny ones often make me cry so I try really hard to stay away from them.

  6. The movie will be so good!

  7. Vicki,
    I read this many years ago!
