my take: oooooh. i loved this. hubby read it a while back and since my to-read pile is enormous, i didn’t add it, merely shelved it in our (now overflowing) library.
pastor heidi quoted from it a few weeks back in her sermon … “the car goes where the eyes go” (hear her message here) … and that was enough to make me dig around the book piles.
because the picture on the front is a dog, i originally thought it was the dog who did the racing. not so. the dog does the narrating. and he’s great.
my sister and i rate works by how many of these a book or movie fulfills: i laughed; i cried; i came away a better person. whammo blammo this book does it all. i’m not a racing enthusiast and i gleaned much from the racing philosophy. i do love dogs, and now even more.
my source: pastor heidi, with nods to michelle in south africa (miss you, girl) and hubby.
my verdict: yes! read this!
Sorry Book Chick fans, I snagged this one after she finished (teary-eyed) on the beach last week… Next on my to-read pile!
