Know any computer-enthralled teenaged boys? Can't get them to read a thing? Here's a recording that's more than rad, more than awesome: a computer game based on the two Greek myths of Theseus and the Minotaur and Perseus and Medusa. More than a game, this computer program ensnares players in another universe, one of fear and evil. Jamie Glover captures the impetuosity of young Phoenix Graves and urges the listener beyond the realm of his boring school and dreary backwater into the blazing sun of Greece and monsters. Though there's a savvy girl in the narrative, the author gives her little scope, so this really is a boy's book. B.H.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
