I absolutely loved this audio version as Mr. Hickey has a most entertaining voice. This is not a boring blah blah reading, his voice is full of character and wonderful inflections. It was a real joy to listen to! A good reading voice really brings the characters to life and makes it a much more exciting adventure.
I happened to see a live performance that Mr. Hickey did a few months ago from his latest book, Morehead. ( which is also very good!) After the reading he was signing books and I
saw The Coaches Son so I bought and read it. But his live performance had been so good so I also bought the audio for the simple fact that he is so much fun to listen to!
The story is well written and honest, about a young boy whose Dad is a professional football coach. The boy, Mark, has a unique and special ability to predict the outcome of games.
It is a warm, and often humorous, tale of a boy's coming of age and the relationships between himself, his family members, and the world. Mark seems to find himself in some interesting situations at every turn, especially when it comes to girls and puberty.
It's an entertaining listen that will keep you involved and laughing, I highly recommend this one!
