ABOUT THE BOOK
Orphaned and blind seven-year-old Callie has a service animal – a goat with extraordinary powers.
Ben Hemoth is a down-on-his luck news reporter facing prison. Needing to save his job and his reputation, he teams up with Venus, a young seductress caught up with a teenage drug gang.
When a mysterious letter arrives detailing a top-secret investigative operation, Ben and Venus think they’ve found their chance for redemption. The mission? Investigate a goat.
In exchange for an extravagant paycheck, Ben and Venus must piece together the wild rumors swirling around Callie, her supernatural goat, and a possible UFO visit.
Piers Anthony’s Service Goat is an extraordinary tale rich with adventure, extraterrestrial visitors, secrecy, dangerous governmental operations, and the classic hints of mischief that readers have come to expect and love from the New York Times bestselling author of the Xanth series. (Amazon)
While I enjoyed this book, there were aspects of the book that made me lose interest as I kept reading. The beginning was fine and I was willing to accept the plot, but as it got more crazy and insane, I was reminded of Anthony’s other book. The ending, however, brought me back. The characters and their journeys were exciting and had well-paced evolutions. Overall, I had fun with most of the book. I recommend this for anyone that is looking for a crazy, creative, and original novel.
