At 50, Hayden Reese has been beset by tragedy at every turn. In his younger years, anger management issues landed him in prison, and his wife and child left him. In the present, Hayden's girlfriend returns to her husband, and his dog, friend and constant companion of many years, dies. As Hayden's tempestuous life unfolds in a series of flashbacks, a superior reading by Anthony Heald keeps Catherine Ryan Hyde's (PAY IT FORWARD) novel from becoming saccharine sweet, sentimental, or cloying. Heald's no-nonsense delivery of the trials and tribulations of Hayden, a modern-day Job, is exciting and stimulating. Heald's performance, as well as some intelligent directorial choices from Blackstone Audio, makes this audiobook well worth listening to.
