Overview

In the summer of 1983, a young teen named Danny Brent and his two best friends share good times and special moments while enjoying that unique magic of childhood, an all too brief time when anything seemed possible. They also share a chilling adventure that bonds them together well into adulthood.

Now, for the first time in almost thirty years, Danny is sharing his secret about what really happened, the story about his brief encounter with the Goatman - a legendary creature that exists on the outskirts of town in a haunted area called Goatman's, how he saved his life, and what happens afterwards.

From the author: "The Goatman" is very much inspired by Stephen King's "The Body," which was then made into the brilliant film "Stand By Me." I wanted to capture the essence of what it was like to be a young boy and growing up, spending time with your best friends, a magical time when every day was an adventure and anything seemed possible.

    This was a very thoughtful book. It is the story of a man, now an author, reflecting back to an adventure that he went on with his two best friends in the summer of 1983. It is written in first person through the eyes of thirteen year-old Danny Brent. He recounts how he and his best friend, Keith (The Bluesman), and Amelia, his first ever crush, venture out to a place called Goatman's.  In the story, Goatman's is an old abandoned place on the outskirts of Corpus Christi, TX that is supposed to be haunted by "The Goatman," a creature that is half man and half goat. There, they get caught up in an adventure that involves a bunch of kids that have been kidnapped from their neighborhood. I found the book to be very entertaining and well written. It reminded me a good deal of Stephen King's "The Body," which was later turned into the movie "Stand By Me." This is a young adult book but I think that people of all ages would enjoy it We were all this young one and this book captures the wonderment of it beautifully.

    This is about 3 friends Dan, Bluesman, Amy. Teens who live in Corpus Christi, TX.
    This story is told by Dan 30 years after the fact. As no one would have believed him back then. Going back to 1983 and being 13 with his first crush, hair cut short and a mongoose to get around town. Amy wears braces and Dan is afraid of getting is lips caught in her braces as that is what the rumors say! So he is afraid of getting his first kiss from Amy. Bluesman got his name from singing the blues at school during school! The 3+ a dog plan a day were they ride out to Goatman's to just hang out in the middle of summer. What they find is more than any 13 yr old should ever have to see. Not giving away this exciting part!




    This was such a surprise for me, as it is not my regular genre. This book took me back to my teen yrs (early 80's), it was such a great innocent time. Except The guys I knew had long hair and our mode of transportation was Skateboards. Reading this book reminded me of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer & Stand By Me. What a great story and well developed characters. I laughed at the caned soda incident and many other parts. I highly recommend this book to teens and adults. I look forward to reading more from this fantastic author!
