Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Samuel West

Fiction • 12.3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

This brilliantly written and deftly read story introduces Louis Little, a 13-year-old English boy spending the summer in Paris while his mother translates a novel written by a Russian immigrant. Tremain masterfully creates the persona of an extremely bright boy as he observes and learns from the world around him, including a special African maid and various French and Russian acquaintances who enliven the novel. Narrator West both enhances the well-drawn characters and the first-person narration. Because of West's fine ability, the listener enters the very character of a special, yet typical, late-twentieth-century boy. This is an excellent choice for teens and adults. S.G.B. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
