    Two complete radio adventures plus special commentary! This Audio Archive presentation of the classic Shadow radio show features two unabridged, 30-minute episodes from the 1930s starring the award-winning voice of Orson Welles.

    In "The Phantom Voice", the Shadow battles racketeers out to destroy one honest judge. Welles also works his vocal magic in "The Death House Rescue", when the Shadow races the clock to save an innocent man from execution.

    Story
    What did you like best about A 'Shadow' Audio Double-Feature, Starring Orson Welles, Volume 1? What did you like least?

    The story was great, a Shadow best. The speaker explaining the history of The Shadow was interesting but was too much. I wanted to listen to the stories, not people talking about the stories.


    What did you like best about this story?

    See above.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Too much introduction.


    Do you think A 'Shadow' Audio Double-Feature, Starring Orson Welles, Volume 1 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, not if the narrator is going to speak as much.


    Any additional comments?

    Story yes, narration no.

    What made the experience of listening to Postmortem the most enjoyable?

    You can feel the apprehension, the tension and the excitement.

    Yes, trying to guess who the killer was and why he was killing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of the ones with the main character and her niece. Such depth and understanding but still pivotal to the plot.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    No matter who you think the killer is, think again.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Teddy says: "The Book Deserves The Hype"
    "A Must Read"
