I'm not a big fan of talking animals. If you give me a choice between the original version of The Incredible Journey with its narrator voice over and the remake that gives the animals voices, I'll pick the original every time and be crying by the closing credits. Experience has taught me that if I watch it again within a week's time, I'll also start blubbering at the opening credits. *sigh* Well, sometimes you just need a good cry.
That's why I was so surprised at how much I like The Art of Racing in the Rain. It's told from the dog's point of view, but Enzo understands that he is a dog and his reasoning is that of a dog (mostly). For whatever reason, it works for me.
Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following: Grab your current readOpen to a random pageShare two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
