by | Read by Steven Pacey

Children Ages 10+ • 2.9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1987

Pacey's rich, resonant voice makes an early, intimate connection with listeners. His appreciative narration is a portal to a world of unusual, imaginative stories that tap the conflicted zone of teenage curiosity and angst. As he brings this collection to life, Pacey portrays a broad range of characters with ease--the painfully awkward teenage boy in first love, a sheltered young woman introduced to a stranger, and a mad scientist. Using effective pacing and a tone that imbues selected words or phrases with layers of emotion, Pacey expresses innocence, awe, fear, anger, insecurity, and humiliation. His delivery highlights the kernel of each story with a respect for the ironic twists of fate that occur in life. R.M. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
