WAR OF THE WORLDS

Global Dispatches

Kevin J. Anderson [Ed.]
Read by MacLeod Andrews

Narrator MacLeod Andrews turns in a virtuoso performance of a work that would be a challenge for any narrator. In this compilation, today's top science-fiction authors create missives by 20 famous people who recount their experiences during a Martian invasion. Each of these vignettes features a handful of characters, an approach that results in dozens of different voices, along with a plethora of accents. Andrews animates the personalities with panache, bringing forth the wry humor of Mark Twain, the persnicketiness of an Emily Dickinson scholar, and the horror of a dogfight by Jack London. Every 20 minutes to an hour, Andrews must inhabit a new set of characters, and he rises to the occasion. The Martian invasion may have been terrible, but Andrews's presentation is delightful. D.E.M.

OVERKILL by Robert Buettner


"Overkill is a solid, surprising science fiction novel delivered perfectly by narrator MacLeod Andrews."


"Macleod Andrews excels in his reading of Overkill. If you want someone to read an emotionally charged novel about a young man, Andrews is your man. He handles the main character well, never letting us forget his youth. Andrews is excellent in adding to the world created by the author, making solid choices for character’s voices and style, Andrews faces a few challenges of narration in Overkill, and they don’t trip him up in the least bit."



THE LOCK ARTIST

Steve Hamilton
Read by MacLeod Andrews

Steve Hamilton's intriguing mystery unfolds tantalizingly. Flashback chapters alternate with the present as dark secrets are slowly revealed and the main character's fate is determined. Narrator Macleod Andrews delivers this first-person story in a conversational, sometimes whispery, tone that immediately captures the listener. He convincingly becomes the complex protagonist: a gifted teenaged artist, locksmith, and unwilling criminal, who has been mute for 10 years due to a grisly childhood trauma. The clever blend of thriller and coming-of-age story is riveting. Andrews’s performance makes it especially enjoyable. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2010]

THE SPECTACULAR NOW
Tim Tharp
Read by
MacLeod Andrews

Sutter Keely is a “live-for-the-moment” high school senior. Narrator MacLeod Andrews captures his happy-go-lucky nature and Oklahoma accent perfectly. Sutter is a genuinely nice guy, although he does spend most of his time partying, drinking, and chasing girls. He just doesn't understand why all of his friends start planning their futures instead of staying like they were, enjoying the present. Andrews skillfully plays all the story’s over-the-top characters—from the suave Sutter himself to his mousy new girlfriend, Aimee. Even the ongoing Italian gangster routine that Sutter carries on with one of his ex-girlfriends is believable in this larger-than-life account. Andrews is full of enthusiasm and fun in his narration. With perfect timing he delivers all the "weird" in Sutter's life. E.N. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award

SANDMAN SLIM
Richard Kadrey
Read by MacLeod Andrews

James Stark, magician and antihero of sorts, returns to the human realm after 11 years in hell as a "flesh and bone, armor-plated Dirty Harry" hit man who seeks revenge against those responsible for his entrapment there. MacLeod Andrews's performance infuses subtle energy into this urban fantasy... His crisp pronunciation and swaggering tone perfectly capture the noir tone of the novel. Andrews flawlessly shifts between various accents (he plays a 200-year-old Frenchman, for example) and character personas—from petty criminals and crime bosses to supernatural beings. The combination of Andrews's vocals and Kadrey's storytelling skills should satisfy and amuse. A.L.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2009]

"The reading is performed by Macleod Andrews, who does the narration in a perfect whiskey voice that's 80 percent Tom Waits, 20 percent Clint Eastwood. The performance and production are marvellous, a great interpretive reading that really brought the novel to life for me."

CROWS & CARDS
Joseph Helgerson
Read by MacLeod Andrews

Helgerson's novel is reminiscent of Mark Twain's Mississippi adventure stories. In 1849, Zebulon Crabtree is 12 years old when his parents send him by riverboat to St. Louis to begin a dreary life as a tanner under his uncle's tutelage. On the boat he meets Chilly Larpentaur, a river gambler who promises to teach him the fine art of cardsharping and shady deals. They’ll teach rich cheaters a lesson by beating them at their own game and giving the money to poor orphans. MacLeod Andrews gives Zeb the voice of a 12-year-old who puts considerable energies into work avoidance. Andrews’s light, folksy tone will have listeners chuckling through Zeb's misadventures and eventual redemption. And the glossary at the end will clarify the “blimblam” of this tale. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2009]

The charm of the tale lies in the witty storytelling, fascinating characters, and a spot-on theatrical performance by narrator MacLeod Andrews. The author’s tongue-in-cheek humor sizzles under MacLeod’s lively presentation, especially Chilly’s slick talking ways. Fans of the author’s Horns and Wrinkles (Houghton Mifflin, 2006) will revel in this latest installment of this Mississippi River tale.–Robyn Gioia, Bolles School, Ponte Vedra, FL

WILL GRAYSON, WILL GRAYSON
John Green, David Levithan
Read by
MacLeod Andrews, Nick Podehl

This unique collaborative novel features alternating chapters about two different teenage boys named Will Grayson. Odd chapters, written by John Green and read by Nick Podehl, feature a witty, likable Will, who is doing his best to avoid relationships and commitment. Even chapters, written by David Levithan and read by MacLeod Andrews, are told from the perspective of a bitter, cynical, but lovelorn gay teen. Both narrators encapsulate the mood and personality of their respective Wills, telling the story of how the two boys eventually meet in a Chicago porn shop. The writing and performances are superb; however, the language and explicit content make this an audiobook for mature teen listeners. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2010]

SHADOW PROWLER
Alexey Pehov
Read by MacLeod Andrews

Harold—a master thief in a world of magic and monsters—loves the darkness so much he’s nicknamed “Shadow Harold.” But all his skill in hiding cannot help him escape from being conscripted into the king's service. Now Harold must venture into the most dangerous part of the realm to steal a magic horn and save the kingdom. Harold is an insouciant rogue, and MacLeod Andrews gives him a throaty timbre and a British accent. He also supplies a supporting cast of whining street beggars, haughty magicians, and growly demons. The story's pace is quick—like a thief slipping through the night. The spooky atmosphere will keep listeners on their toes. G.A.D. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2010]
