Absolutely! I've already recommend It to several people. The story, combined with Will Patton's narration, make it one of my favorite audiobooks ever.
I liked Amos (main character) very much. But Jake is probably my favorite. He is an extrememly honest character in terms of being 'real.' He is rough and crusty, but underneath he has a simple, uncomplicated love for his son. He is a very colorful character.
For me, Will Patton made this book. If I were to read it, I would hear his voice on every page. I would look for more Will Patton-narrated books.
While it was not intended to be a humorous book, the characters are at times very amusing. I did laugh out loud a few times. I also found myself experiencing extreme sadness. The writer handles human emotion extremely well.
I had the pleasure of meeting and hearing the author speak about this book recently. She shared the background for the story, which made it all the more fascinating. To read about it, go to the author's websites.
