In a horrifying, yet ultimately triumphant, psychological study of child abuse and recovery, Georgie Burgess struggles to survive, first physically in a hostile environment, then spiritually in the boys school to which he is removed. George Guidall's delivery of the third-person narration is consistently faithful to the main character's viewpoint. Subtle changes in pacing, pitch and accent suitably define important secondary characters. Throughout, Guidall's gentle voice aptly conveys the damaged child's thoughts, feelings and intentions, often defiant or confused, occasionally wondrous or joyous. Emotionally powerful and heartrending, Guidall's narration will haunt the listener long after its conclusion. T.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 97]
