Narrator Francis Greenslade is wonderfully eerie in this atmospheric thriller in which the hero's waking and dreaming lives converge when he finds himself the protector of a magic child. Greenslade's throaty Aussie accent is perfectly suited for this brooding tale. His turn as omniscient narrator is especially strong, setting the tone for the thrills and chills to come. As Tom, the story's hero, Greenslade offers only slight variation from his standard delivery, a shift so subtle yet appealing that it's wonderful. The pace of the story lies in Greenslade's unwavering voice, and he knows exactly how to control it to best effect. The resulting tale is unsettling, to say the least.
