Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ian Dunn

Children • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1992

Set at the time of the Gulf War, Westall's story explores further conflicts within a British family. Ian Dunn narrates the view of 15-year-old Tom Higgins. Dunn projects the energy of a hearty, rugby-play ing family until Tom's younger brother changes all their lives. Foreshadowing the psychotic experiences that eventually overwhelm the boys, Dunn carefully builds suspense and projects the frightening and riveting power of these episodes. The narration bridges reality and delusion, drawing the listeners into the mix of emotions. Dunn's subtle, yet dynamic, narration brilliantly complements Westall's spellbinding, complex story for young adults. R.F.W.
