Reviews for Gregor and the Marks of Secret : Library Edition


AudioFile Reviews 2008 December/January 2009
War finds Gregor and Luxa in this fourth installment of the Underland Chronicles. The rats have caught the mice and plan to exterminate them. Gregor and company race to save the mice, ending with a cliff-hanger event. Paul Boehmer provides a rich narration that enhances this fast-paced adventure. Deftly he conveys Gregor's growing unease and sense of responsibility. Boehmer's vocal characterizations entertain as much as they inform. Boots's precocious toddler voice and Ripred's smug rat sneer take over the production with their panache. Note: Disturbing descriptions of the mass extermination of mice, metaphorically reminiscent of the Holocaust, are aimed at an older audience. C.A. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
