WALKING WITH SAM A Father, a Son, and Five Hundred Miles Across Spain

by | Read by Andrew McCarthy, Sam McCarthy

Biography & Memoir • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Actor and director Andrew McCarthy narrates his latest audiobook with sonority and pitch variety that make listening a treat. His voice is contemplative and his insights humble as he and his son, Sam, try to understand themselves and each other during their 500-mile walk in Spain. Nineteen-year-old Sam, also an actor, performs his pithy comments during the journey with less charm, which fits a stereotype of his demographic and helps show why so many fathers are frustrated by their young adult sons. The discomfort between them is riveting as Andrew worries about Sam's future and whether he will finish the adventure. This is a beautifully written travelogue/memoir and a satisfying account of how a father's own issues can complicate his relationship with his son.
