EXTREME ENCOUNTERS How it Feels to Be Drowned in Quicksand, Shredded by Piranhas, Swept Up in a Tornado, and Dozens of

by | Read by Henry Leyva

Contemporary Culture • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

Quicksand, piranhas, tornadoes--this audiobook's opening fulfills all its promises for vicarious psychotrauma. Written in the second person, these stories ensure that you will feel the stinging attack of African fire ants and the white shark's teeth ripping the muscle from your leg. The truth is that people find horror stories all- absorbing, and Henry Leyva's clever, lighthearted treatment of the bizarre intensifies both the production's color and its potential for producing nightmares. Trust us, you could have a root canal during some of these accounts and never feel a thing. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
