Every Day

David Leviathan, read by Alex McKenna. Listening Library, unabridged, seven CDs, 8.5 hrs., $37 ISBN 978-0-449-01520-9

Imagine waking up every morning in a different body, with a different personality, and a different life. This is reality for A, who experiences a new beginning every day of his life. And while A has come to accept this fate, when he awakens to meet the woman of his dreams, he decides he must find a way to break the cycle. Leviathan’s entertaining and imaginative novel comes to life in this inspired reading by Alex McKenna. Despite the fact that A is a male, the female McKenna brilliantly captures the character, adding nuance and depth. The narrator’s delivery is confident, emotive, and captivating—at times it sounds as if she is reading from her own diary. The result is truly memorable listening. Ages 12–up. A Knopf hardcover.
