IDLEWILD

by | Read by Clayton Barclay Jones, Beth McDonald

Science Fiction • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

A teen named Halloween awakes from a nightmare convinced someone's out to kill him. Or was it only a virtual nightmare? For that matter, is HE real? In this dystopian future nothing is certain except that our hero is in mortal danger. He must save not only himself, but the entire human race. The lad himself tells the tale in this rousing sci-fi thriller, which is interrupted occasionally by virtual warnings from a cyborg voice (impersonated by Beth McDonald and aided by clever editing). As Halloween, Clayton Barclay Jones sounds appropriately young. Unfortunately, he also sounds inexperienced. After an energetic opening, he soon disengages from his text, which he merely recites with less technique than the material demands. Y.R.
