It's 1936, and Tobias Henry is stuck in the frozen hinterlands of Michigan. Tobias is obsessed with two things: God and girls. Mostly girls, of course. But being a Baptist preacher's son, he can't escape God. When his father is blinded in a bizarre accident (involving hard cider and bird droppings), Tobias must ride the rails to Texas to recover a long-hidden stash of money. Along the way, he's initiated into the hobo brotherhood by Craw, a ribald vagabond-philosopher. Obstacles arise in the form of a saucy prostitute, a flaming boxcar, and a man-eating catfish. But when he meets Sarah, a tough farm girl under a dark curse, he finds out that the greatest challenge of all is love.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melody Vaccaro | 2/6/2014

    " quick read. Not a "dirty" book. Boy has a strict upbringing and ends up leaving home for an adventure. Everything his father taught him is in question as the world keeps throwing sinful people and things his way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz Utter | 2/1/2014

    " I don't really recommend this one "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa Kelley | 2/1/2014

    " What a unique book! It reminded me of the movie "Oh Brother Where Art Thou." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 1/30/2014

    " Great out of the gate. Loses something twards the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Klaimy | 1/26/2014

    " Really cute book, great characters, funny, poignant. I'd definitely recommend it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cyn | 1/21/2014

    " A VERY quick read but entertaining as hell. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marvel | 1/16/2014

    " Cute book - kind of the same venue as Water For Elephants but, of course, not as good. Funny look at hobo life and life in general in the 1930's. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 1/14/2014

    " It's a quick, light, and entertaining read. Nothing extraordinary, but fun. Helps to read the story of Tobit first (included in some Biblical traditions). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darlene Jones | 1/12/2014

    " Think Water for Elephants, but with a much lighter touch. Torode presents a whimsical story of the 'dirty thirties' with wonderful humor that is never overdone. A fun read, but with enough depth to make the reader think about life and religion and where the best middle of the road path might be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan Mahaffey | 1/8/2014

    " Not what I expected given the title but a good read none the less. A story of spiritual and physical enlightenment. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Keith Bell | 1/7/2014

    " Weird coming of age book. "

    " This book presents an interesting perspective on the bible and the pressures that come along with understanding it (or misunderstanding). Very cute... pretty funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Schwartz | 3/4/2013

    " This is the biblical story of Tobias and Sarah from the book of Tobit set during the depression. The story was somewhat interesting and the writing was okay. Nothing to write home about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 12/14/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy Mcallister | 8/23/2012

    " This novel grabbed me with its title and hooked me with its story. A cool coming of age novel based around Tobias as he leaves home to save the family. The hobos he meets along the way and his family in Texas are sure to have you smiling. Great book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 5/28/2011

    " i think anyone would enjoy this one - quick read, but not inconsequential in the end. an interesting huck finn type adventure, with a humorous tilt. I originally put three start, but i'm thinking it's really more 3.5 with a lean toward 4, so i upped the rating. give this one a shot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly | 5/16/2011

    " Nice short story for an afternoon read. "

    " A VERY quick read but entertaining as hell. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 4/28/2011

    " For a free download to the Kindle I took a chance. The story seemed a little rushed and choppy. Overall a cute adaptation of the tale of Sarah and Tobias from the Book of Tobit. I'll take a chance on more of Sam Torode's work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 4/25/2011

    " Not really dirty nor that much about the Bible, this is a charming coming of age story set in the depression era. This book is a charming and funny read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ty | 4/25/2011

    " This book was so bad I didn't even finish it. Not interesting at all really. Boring story, bad writing…just not good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 4/19/2011

    " Quick and easy read, enteratining, funny, and well written. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarah | 4/19/2011

    " I don't know if I can finish it. This book is just a string of annoying cliches. The fact that I am still reading it instead of moving on is annoying me too. Over half the way through, so it probably isn't going to greatly improve in the second half! "
