Eoin Colfer, read by John Keating. AudioGO, unabridged, seven CDs, 8 hrs., $29.95 ISBN 978-1-60998-471-7
The mixture of Colfer’s amusing prose and narrator John Keating’s comedic timing makes this audio production a thoroughly entertaining listening experience. Bouncer Daniel McEvoy just wants to work at a shady casino, detach from his past, and tend to his newly attached hair plugs. However, a missing surgeon and a murdered dancer means McEvoy must rely on his military experience and charm to set things right. Unfortunately for McEvoy, this leads to increasingly ridiculous situations and an ever-accumulating pile of bodies and felonies. Keating’s narration is masterful. He lends McEvoy a personable tone and an authentic Irish accent. His rendition of the character is so good that listeners will feel as if McEvoy is sitting at a local bar and telling them his tale. Additionally, Keating provides the rest of the cast with a fine range of voices that, although cartoonish, represent Colfer’s extreme and goofy characters. An Overlook hardcover. (Sept.)
