Such a cool book, I loved the point of view...it's what made the book. The dog had this serious but slightly amusing character (talking about how he *should* have thumbs, or a tongue that could form sounds). It gave me a whole new appreciation of dogs, lol...I read this at the same time I was looking after a friend's dog who I'm pretty sure is insane. ;)
I don't know much about racing, but the book kept me interested in it and I loved how the author made the connection between "rules" of racing and real life.
Such a great book - you have to read it! I read it in a day, I just couldn't put it down - not because the plot was so intense or anything, it was just so well-written and sweet, I kept turning the pages.
