Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Louis Drax is an unusual 9-year-old boy. Called “wacko boy” at school and having survived several near deadly challenges, including cot death, food poisoning, and electrocution, he is determined never to make his mother cry. While on a picnic, Louis falls from a cliff and nearly drowns, surviving only in a coma. Dr. Pascal Dannachet attempts to waken Louis and in the process becomes embroiled in the secrets of the Drax family. Jeff Woodman is wonderful. As Louis he sounds like a difficult and uncertain child. Gerard Doyle’s rich tones expertly portray Dr. Dannachet’s confusion, fear, and pity. This unconventional psychological thriller with brilliant performances from both narrators will leave you lost in thought for some time. A.B.
