Atherton: The House of Power

Patrick Carman, Author, Jonathan Davis, Read by , read by Jonathan Davis. Hachette Audio $29.98 (0p) ISBN 978-1-59483-966-5

The world of Atherton consists of three distinct, interconnected lands stacked atop each other like a layer cake. At the top are the Highlands, home to Atherton’s rich and oppressive ruling class; the middle layer is the Flatlands, populated by Atherton’s subservient working class; the bottom layer is The Wastelands where none dare venture, for the few that have done so have never been heard from again. When the three worlds inexplicably begin to collapse into each other, and the Highlands and Flatlands prepare for war, it may well be young, insatiably curious Edgar who holds the key to Atherton’s survival. With soft, well-articulated vocalizations, Davis portrays a wide range of characters here, and his intimate delivery proves perfect for pulling the listener into the heart of this complex fantasy. The augmentation of his performance with strategically placed music and sound effects only serves to enhance his storytelling. Ages 8-up. (May)
