CITY BOY The Adventures of Herbie Bookbinder

by | Read by Peter Berkrot

Fiction • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1948

Peter Berkrot narrates this delightful timeless tale. Herbie Bookbinder is an overweight, clever, and eternally optimistic denizen of the Bronx in 1928. All he wants from life is to be a regular guy with his pals and to win the affections of Lucille, his red-haired crush. Berkrot's narration has a faintly old-fashioned style that suits both the era and the episodic nature of the audiobook. His slyly witty interpretation of Herbie will make listeners groan in sympathy when his imagination gets him into trouble and cheer him on when he triumphs over disaster. Deftly filling out the large cast of eccentric characters with broad accents and humorous vocal tics, Berkrot keeps listeners wondering what Herbie's next adventure will be.
