Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Charlie Thurston

Fiction • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Charlie Thurston's performance transports listeners into a modern fantasy laced with themes of cultural differences, gay romance, and the battle between science and religion. German native Max can bring dead animals back to life with his touch. After moving to Alabama, he enrolls in a Christian school, becomes engrossed in the "boys being boys" culture of the football team, and explores a relationship with Pan, an unapologetic witch living his best life. Thurston offers the perfect dynamic narration for such a rich story. Max is depicted as a complex character with multiple layers. Listeners will experience Thurston peeling those layers with tenderness, sympathy, and compassion. A remarkable performance charged with melodrama and polished theatrics makes this a gem amid narrations. G.M.
