Format: Paperback
I read this book in adult version and just loved it.
so much so that I ordered two for my friends/family....
was disappointed in this particular choice as it was not the adult version.

be careful to look an enlarged pic of front cover
where it says...juvenille version. tho it probably was very good also.

I absolutely loved this book. I borrowed it from a friend, and then ended up buying my own copy. Enzo is one smart little canine dude! Every dog owner knows that their dog has deep thoughts - well here they are written down. Very philosophical, sensitive and altogether wonderful. Great reading and thought provoking.

By Jong Uk TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Feb. 17 2012
Format: Paperback
Now, this book is perfect for both dog lovers, and automobile enthusiasts. You would have often found that a book does not give sufficient detail about the vehicle. But this book is a special and rare book, that states, at least the make. It is said that Denny drives a BMW. I start thinking, maybe 3 series? And then I read that he works in a, "fancy" repair shop for prestigious German automobiles, (Mercedes-Benz and BMW) which means he probably earns a lot of money. So he would have a 5,6 or 7 series. Though, in one part, he takes Enzo, his dog, out for a joyride, on a racetrack in his BMW, so it must be a 1 series. It has endless possibilities, which is fun to guess. But for the book, it's a perfect mix of different emotions, with a bit of sorrow in the aproperiate spot. Everyone should try the book!
This is a wonderful book, but I hesitate to say it wasn't too humorous.

I picked up this book because of the dog on the cover and after being in love with W. Bruce Cameron's "A Dog's Purpose," I thought this story was going to be equally as heartwarming. I was highly disappointed with Racing in the Rain, the characters were poorly developed plus I was not entirely into the whole racecar driving thing which was the whole premise of the story (I wish I knew this before I bought it)... honestly, I never finished the book... I skimmed through most of it and the story didn't really seem to be very compelling or have anything to do with dogs except for the sorry fact that it was being narrated by a dog... enough said.

What an interesting story! My heart strings were tugged, I laughed out loud and thoroughly enjoyed this well written recounting of one man's values. The struggle between family and career and the loyalties and loves rang true for me. The legal manipulations were familiar and the resolutions heartwarming. Loved that it was told in the voice of a dog.

I have to be honest; I did not read this book which is a youth's version of "The Art of Racing in the Rain," which I did read and review. I purchased this book in error not realizing the age group for which it was written. As a consequence I donated the book to a library where I understand it has attracted a waiting list of young readers.

I recently read the digital edition of this book & loved it. I ordered the paperback for my husband only to realize this was a special edition for young readers. Amazon should include 'A special adaptation for young readers' in the title to avoid confusion. I will be donating this copy to my local elementary school's library.
