Product Details


Gr 7-12-Monster, by Walter Dean Myers (HarperCollins, 1999), was written as a first-person dramatic film script in which Steve, a 16-year-old teenager on trial for murder, recounts his arrest, experiences while in jail, and trial. This unusual story, read smoothly and efficiently by Peter Francis James, will be enjoyed by young adult listeners who will feel the courtroom drama even more emotionally through James' narration. However, his authoritative, matter-of-fact tone keeps the narration from getting maudlin. His rhythmic, steady speech is usually gentle and reassuring, but it does show anger when appropriate. James realistically recreates Steve's speech, and on occasion changes tone or pitch to differentiate characters. This audiobook will stimulate interest in the book and other novels by Meyers.-Claudia Moore, W.T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
