THE GOOD GOOD PIG The Extraordinary Life of Christopher Hogwood

by | Read by Xe Sands

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Good, good news for patient fans: Naturalist Sy Montgomery's beloved tale of her pig, Christopher Hogwood, is an audiobook at last! Xe Sands narrates this memoir of Montgomery's life with her porcine friend and what he teaches her about love, community, and family. Sands sounds at times quietly confidential, at other times mildly amused--her delivery has an intimate air, as though she's reminiscing about this pet to a close friend, an approach that suits the material. Listeners meet Christopher as a sickly runt, enjoy his transformation into a hefty runaway, and grieve with the author when he eventually passes away, after a full, deeply intelligent life. Fans of all ages will enjoy and return to Montgomery's humorous, thoughtful reflections on the deep, sometimes inexplicable bonds between people and animals.
