|Baby girl is a race car driver at heart|
I loved this book.
It took me a while to get to it because it is being marketed as a dog story. (They tend to sell a lot better than racing stories.) But it has something for everyone: a dog, a love story, heartbreak, perseverance, and racing. The parts where the author describes racing are very authentic: he talks about real tracks, real drivers and real cars in such a way that he is either a racing enthusiast or he consulted one (or several) when he was working on the book.
Perhaps not coincidentally, I love dogs, and I love racing, and I love a good story. So this was right in my wheelhouse.
There are some who suggest that the theme and language in the book are too cheesy, too unsophisticated. To which I say: tosh! Read it and enjoy it for what it is: a good story, well told. I think the style of the book suits the language and theme, but that's me.
