SILENT CAME THE MONSTER A Novel of the 1916 Jersey Shore Shark Attacks

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by David Marantz

Historical Fiction • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

This audiobook demonstrates that a shark attack can be as scary on audio as it is on the big screen. With narrator David Marantz at the mic, this fictionalization of a series of shark attacks off the New Jersey shore in 1916 is frightening and entertaining. Marantz's performance is ideal. He employs a low-key delivery that complements author Amy Hill Hearth's superb dialogue and highlights the fears and ignorance of the local townsfolk. Marantz is most memorable in his depiction of surgeon Edwin Halsey, who examines one victim and believes he was killed by a shark that will attack again while others cavalierly dismiss his warnings. By the book's conclusion, listeners may be tempted to avoid swimming in the ocean this summer. D.J.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
