Overview

El arte de conducir bajo la lluvia lo tiene todo: amor, tragedia, redención, peligro y lo mejor, el narrador canino Enzo, cuya alma de perro longevo tiene mucho que enseñarnos sobre el ser humano.

En Mongolia, cuando un perro muere es enterrado en lo alto de la montaña para que nadie pueda pisar su tumba. El dueño del perro le susurra al oído que desea que se reencarne, en su próxima vida, en un hombre. Hasta entonces, el alma del perro es libre de vagar por la tierra y sus paisajes, durante el tiempo que quiera. Sólo algunos perros se reencarnan en hombres, únicamente los que están listos para ello. Yo estoy listo.

Esto lo aprendí viendo un programa de National Geographic en la televisión, así que debe de ser verdad. Vivo con Danny, y he aprendido tanto de él... he aprendido los principios para ser un buen piloto de carreras. Equilibrio, anticipación, paciencia. Éstas son lecciones muy importantes, tanto para la vida como para una pista de carreras. Danny es un verdadero campeón, aunque no todos lo vean así, porque Danny tiene responsabilidades. Tiene a su hija Zoë, y tiene a su esposa Eve. Y me tiene a mí.

Lo que más me gusta es correr por la hierba con la cabeza baja, sintiendo cómo las gotas de agua del rocío me salpican la cara. Me gusta correr y sentir todos los olores, toda la vida. Cuando yo regrese a este mundo voy a volver como un hombre, y voy a caminar entre vosotros. Voy a estrechar vuestras manos. Y cuando vea a un hombre, o a una mujer, o a un niño en problemas, voy a ofrecerle mi mano, aél, a ella, a ti. Al mundo. Voy a ser un buen ciudadano, un buen amigo en el camino de la vida que todos compartimos.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Enzo narrates his life story, beginning with his impending death. He's not afraid of dying, as he's seen a television documentary on the Mongolian belief that a good dog will be reincarnated as a man. Yes, Enzo is a dog. And he belongs to Denny: husband, father, and customer service technician. Denny's dream is to be a professional race-car driver, and Enzo recounts the triumphs and tragedies—medical, financial, and legal—they share in this quest, the dangers of the racetrack being the least of their obstacles. Enzo ultimately teaches Denny and the reader that persistence and joie de vivre will see them through to the checkered flag. Recommended for public libraries with large Spanish-language commercial fiction collections. [LJ 4/1/08]
