CIRQUE DU FREAK: A LIVING NIGHTMARE The Saga of Darren Shan, Book 1

by | Read by Ralph Lister

Young Adult Young Adult (12-17) • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Sounding intensely focused and precise, Ralph Lister's mesmerizing baritone cuts smoothly through this story of the intrepid Darren Shan and a chilling trip to a freak show that will alter his life forever. A fast pace and enthusiastic tone paint vivid characterizations of the young protagonist and his friends. They sound eager and reckless in their zest for life, though Lister readily slows down the narrative to increase tension when portraying the menacing freak show performer, Mr. Crepsley. Through the juxtaposition of humor and terror, pacing and personalities, listeners are drawn into the building horror of Darren's predicament. Lister's detached tone compels listeners forward despite their growing fear. K.S.B. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2013]
