Horror • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1982

Set in a dystopian future America, THE RUNNING MAN makes for grim but compelling listening. The bleakness is somewhat mitigated by Kevin Kenerly’s carefully measured, almost-soothing delivery. The listener is immediately hooked as desperate father Ben Richards is forced to participate in a reality TV show in order to raise money to buy medicine for his sick baby. Kenerly’s voice is perfect for the determinedly resourceful Richards, who must remain at liberty for 30 days while “hunters” track him. If he fails, they’ll kill him. Stephen King originally wrote the book under the name Richard Bachman, and it was made into a film with Arnold Schwarzenegger playing Richards. Thank goodness we audiobook listeners have Kevin Kenerly. C.A.T. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2010]
