    Forrmer academic Arthur Opp weighs 550 pounds and hasn’t left his rambling Brooklyn home in a decade. Twenty miles away in Yonkers, seventeen-year-old Kel Keller navigates life as the poor kid in a rich school and pins his hopes on what seems like a promising baseball career - if he can untangle himself from his family drama.

    Deborah says: "Mesmerizing Performance"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would not have included Arther Op's confession in the beginning.


    Has Heft turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What aspect of Kirby Heyborne and Keith Szarabajka ’s performance would you have changed?

    The actor reading The part of Arthur Op was perfect. Paced well and Expressive. The voice of Kel was too slow and too adult.


    Was Heft worth the listening time?

    No, I listened at normal pace for hours and then sped it up 3x normal speed.


    Any additional comments?

    I was disappointed, the characters were predictable and I did not know them any differently from the way they were developed in the beginning.

    Great introduction to a new collection of writers. I will definitely look for more stories from them. It was like getting a big gift with multiple gifts inside.
