Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fourteen-year-old Ellis is getting ready to leave the Southwest for a boarding school in the East. This means leaving behind the only real father he has ever known, Goat Man. Goat Man has been raising a herd of goats all the while teaching Ellis the meaning of stability, caretaking, and commitment. And when a skeptical Ellis returns for spring break, he and Goat Man will be forced to re-evaluate their relationship.

 

 

Review:

"Fourteen-year-old Ellis and adoptive father Goat Man are forced to take a good hard look at their relationship when Ellis returns home from boarding school for spring break. Narrator Ray Porter offers a colorful and imaginative reading replete with inspired characterizations achieved through subtle shifts in tone, dialect, and attitude. Porter's Goat Man is a grainy, nature-loving hippie, and fully embodies the nuances of the eccentric protagonist. The narrator lends Ellis a youthful voice that matures over the course of this audio edition. Reading at a swift pace and with fabulous comedic timing and emotional beats peppered appropriately throughout, Porter manages to engage listeners from start to finish in an inspired performance.
