Something Wicked This Way Comes
Earlier this week I blogged about All Hallows Listen, and I have found my recommendation! Gather your family and friends around your computer or stereo system and get ready for an exceptional audio production! Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury is not your typical audio book. This is a production with a full cast, music and sound effects. It’s an engaging story and has been created in the format of radio theater.
In this story, a creepy carnival comes to town a week before Halloween and two thirteen year old boys, Jim Nightshade and Will Halloway, are swept up in the excitement. There’s a house of mirrors, a maze and of course, a curious carousel. The carnival promises to bring you everything you wish for, but the boys will soon learn that what you wish for isn’t necessarily what you want. And if something is too good to be true, it probably is.
This wonderful audio production really adds to the story; you’ll feel like you’re walking (and running) through the carnival with the boys. The audio book was spooky, but not too scary. If you’re still looking for your All Hallows Listen pick, this would be a really fun audio book to listen to with a group on Halloween.
