When Tom's grandfather slips beyond the Wall, Tom thinks old Gandy's lost his mind. Everyone knows the Outside is filled with savages and dangerous wildlife. So Tom follows his grandfather, and what he learns on the Outside changes his life forever. In the overflowing genre of dystopia novels, this is a standout. Bernard Cribbins's excellent vocal characterizations pull the reader into the story. The cynical voice of Gandy, the booming voice of the mailman, the wizened voice of Tom's great uncle, and the tired voice of his great aunt all seem perfectly suited to the characters. Between the characters and the author's smooth pacing and interesting plot, this production keeps the cassettes moving. A.F. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
