I’m cheating a little because I’m writing this on the eve of day two, but tomorrow may be hard to write, I have too much going on. Last week I read a great book called “The At of Racing In The Rain”. Its a fairly simple story about this guy Denny and his wife and kid, but it’s told from the point of view of his dog. This dog is extremely intelligent though, and he is a huge fan of European style auto racing. It sucked me in and wouldn’t let me go, I read it in about 24 hours and was teary eyed by the end. The story has it all: love, drama, suspense, tragedy, transcendence.
The week before I finished “Gone Girl”. If you like a book where the author is toying with you and you’re not sure exactly what’s going on, this is the one for you. Utterly unpredictable, with deviously manipulatively characters and a surprise ending that might leave you grinning or completely aghast.
