Elden Henson, who played protagonist Max in the film version of this book, proves how well he knows the characters and story in this audio rendition. His reading reinvigorates Max's point of view in this extraordinary story of two misfit adolescents who work together to become a force for good. Disabled Kevin rides on the shoulders of oversized Max--literally. Henson's voices changes its timbre when the brilliant Kevin speaks, and Max's growing admiration for him comes through clearly. When Max's jailed father, "Killer Kane," reappears, and holds him hostage, Max must confront his fear that he may one day become as cruel as his father, and lose the relationships Kevin has helped him build.
