Narrator Mark Sanderlin's tone of expectant tension suits this slow-moving fantasy for listeners who appreciate deep thinking. The author writes, "A book is like a pond. It shows one story on the surface and another in its depths." This is that kind of audiobook. When his parents separate, Juanito spends the summer with his eccentric Uncle Tito. Tito's home is a labyrinth of books, and Juanito soon learns that the books have minds (and motion!) of their own--adapting their stories and changing their settings. With the help of his uncle and a newfound girlfriend, Juanito unravels a mystery. This audiobook was translated from Spanish. A Hispanic narrator would have been a nice addition.
