THE WANDERING HOUR The Doomsday Archives

by | Read by Ramón de Ocampo

Children Ages 8+ • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Middle-grade listeners who know narrator Ramón de Ocampo as Wimpy Kid Greg Heffley will be stunned by his display of versatility in this horror tale set in rainy New Rotterdam, a vortex of supernatural weirdness. When newcomer Emrys and two friends find a book with an eye that blinks and that talks, they're ushered into a fight against forces of evil. De Ocampo carries listeners past the text's occasional bobble with aplomb, creating a believable trio of distinct characters whose emotional journeys are as affecting as the plot is creepy. His articulation of the talking book's patrician tones is a particular delight, but it never upstages the kids at the novel's heart. This opens a series; listeners will want the next one immediately.
