At turns shockingly fierce and surprisingly tender, Goat is a shattering memoir that graphically portrays the scarred emotional landscape of young men. Brad is driving two strangers home from a party when he realizes they are leading him to the middle of nowhere. Viciously beaten and left in the middle of the road, Brad survives. But as his physical injuries heal, his psychological wounds worsen. Desperate to belong, he pledges his brother's fraternity. What he finds is not brotherhood and support, but alienation and more violence. Download and start listening now!

    " Appropriately fast read coming of age novel. Good writing. Couldn't fall in love with characters but pace and story were enough to keep me engaged. "

    " An intriguing story, even if the stream-of-consciousness writing style does grate. I always thought the design on the cover would make an awesome tattoo. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mfalco65 | 10/18/2010

    " I read this book in one sitting. It offers revealing insights into the nature of violence, power relationships and ultimately how people treat others in the name of something they don't fully understand. "

    " enlightening and frightening look inside the life of a fraternity pledges "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheryl | 9/21/2010

    " I found this book to be disappointing. At the time I read it, I was a graduate student at UNC Wilmington, where Land completed his MFA. The book received considerable local hype, but I felt as though there were something missing. I struggled to identify with the main character. "

    " not sure why i read this. i think it was the red cover that sucked me in... marketing. "

    " Good writer, but very depressing mood overall. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 10/26/2009

    " Well. This made me remember why Greek systems are ridiculous, and why college life is ridiculous, and by ridiculous I actually mean completely terrifying at points. A brave book - should be required reading for anyone considering pledging, whatever their reasons may be. "
