In a bare-bones abridgment, Colin Buchanan brings to life a struggling single dad, Harry, as he adjusts to life with his 5-year-old son, Pat. Buchanan's reading is infused with humor. He doesn't miss a beat, portraying each character with subtle differences as everyday people struggle to make the best of a bad situation. Buchanan excels with his portrayal of Harry, which captures the character's incredulity at life's turn of events, as well as his sarcastic wit and tender side. This is no small feat considering the range of emotions offered in this story. H.L.S. 2003 Audie Award Finalist (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
