No Mama. An abusive father. A hound dog for a best friend. Jake escapes from the remote Appalachian cabin - the only home he has ever known. And Father hunts him down with the very rifle he used to kill Sam and Mama.

    Story
    "Man's Inhumanity to Man"

    I was given this book by the author via audiobook boom. This is a story of how a three-year-old boy lived through seven years of horror before being big enough to run away. His Father killed his Mamma and her lover. Then took it out on the little boy. After God sends angels to protect him in the guise of a hound dog and special signs from the sky. Jake is provided with a home filled with love. Circumstances bring him back to his father or almost and in the end the twist that led to him uniting with his grandfather and getting a mother were well written. The story is long and does some twists and turns but worth listening to until the end.

    I love books...I love storytelling. Audiobooks allow me to enjoy a great story while still being able to do my daily routine. Thanks Audible

    Story
    "Thrilling"
    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Mr. Callanan did a super job with the various characters (both male and female). There were some production issues (words chopped off, too loud dialog at times) while this was annoying, it didn't take away from the overall experience. There were a few spots when the character depictions were a bit over the top or the intended expressions were missed. Overall Mr. Callanan did a great job and let the listener lose herself in the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Poulos writes a thrilling story. The listener really connects with Jake and Ethan. I found the abrupt changes of scenes (present, past memory recollections, Jake or Ethan) to be distracting and sometimes confusing.

    I received this free copy via audiobook boom in exchange for an unbiased review.
