THE PECULIAR

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Peter Altschuler

Young Adult Young Adult • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

The door between the human and faery worlds has been closed since the end of the Smiling War in Victorian England. The surviving humans and faeries are living in a precarious peace when children—changeling children—begin to go missing. A thrilling tale of mystery and suspense, Stefan Bachmann's debut novel is populated by memorably named characters and punctuated by descriptive and playful language, all of which are wonderfully captured by the deft narration of Peter Altschuler. A theatrical delight, Altschuler employs a variety of British accents and is meticulous in his pacing, flawlessly heightening the tension at times, while slowing down to consider a character's internal debates. Most notably, villains become more sinister with Altschuler's cringe-worthy delivery. Recommended for family road trips. A.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2012]
