The Page Turners
The Page Turners meet at the Rock Hall branch the 2nd Friday of the month. This book group reads a mixture of fiction and nonfiction and discussions are led by participant volunteers. New attendees are always welcome.
The February selection is The Art of Racing in the Rain: A Novel by Garth Stein. Rated 4.21 out of 5 on Goodreads.
Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver.
Through Denny, Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition, and he sees that life, like racing, isn't simply about going fast. On the eve of his death, Enzo takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through.
A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope, The Art of Racing in the Rain is a beautifully crafted and captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life ... as only a dog could tell it.
