How do you handle a crazy jackass? Eddie knows. If you ask Eddie, he'll tell you pigs can fly and show you where to find real mammoth bones. Take his word for it when he tells you always to bet on the bear. These are things he learned while dreaming of becoming a cowboy in West Texas during the Depression. Through Eddie, the hero of Tales of a Texas Boy, we find that growing up is less about maturity and more about roping your dreams. Hold on tight. It's a bumpy ride. A wonderful listen for anyone who enjoys audiobooks like Little House on the Prairie or Tom Sawyer. A great bit of nostalgia for seniors, too.
Like listening to a play, not a dull narration
The stories are simple and fun. Very nostalgic for older folks who grew up in rural communities.
The narrator gives voice to the main character so well, plus he manages to convey multiple other characters ranging from kids to the elderly. It's not just a flat narration of a story, but like the difference between reading a play and hearing it performed. I've listened to a few audio books now, and I think this one the most entertaining because of the ability of the narrator to do different voices.
