The Whaleoil Book Club is a compilation of recommended books from readers

This holiday season we are going to review approximately one book per day so that it gives people a chance to do their own research on the books and authors by using the links provided and not miss out by being bombarded by a whole lot at once.

The purpose is to share with others sources of information and/or entertainment to aid with relaxing as people take some time off work.

Each post is set out with the name of who submitted it, the name of the book and author and a short review in the form of a comment from whoever submitted it.

Todays review came from Debs.

The Art of Racing in the Rain.

By Garth Stein.

Debs said: “A book written from a dog’s point of view about his owner who is a racing car driver. Beautifully written, funny and sad, a great read”

Amazon said: “A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope–a captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life . . . as only a dog could tell it.”
