Children Ages 10+ • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Oliver Wyman delivers a thoroughly engaging narration of this futuristic tale. Twelve-year-old Becker Drane is selected for "the best job in the world": being "a Fixer" at The Seems. The Seems, unbeknownst to humans, is the company responsible for building the world we live in and includes the Departments of Weather, Time, and Sleep. Becker lives in the earthly world until he's called upon for his first Fixer mission: to fix a glitch in the Department of Sleep. Wyman masterfully reads this witty and adventurous story. His voice is clear and his enunciation, precise. He succeeds beautifully in characterizing people of different ages and backgrounds, complete with wonderful foreign accents (Australian, French, etc.). Ample pauses bring forth the suspense of the story. N.A.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
