    Cooger & Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show has come to Green Town, Illinois, to destroy every life touched by its strange and sinister mystery. And two inquisitive boys standing precariously on the brink of adulthood will soon discover the secret of the satanic raree-show's mazes and mirrors, as they learn all too well the heavy cost of wishes and the stuff of nightmares.

    Story

    This is one of my favorite books from childhood. I remember reading and getting the shivers as the story progressed. I did not get the shivers from this audio version becase the choice of narrator did not seem like a good fit with the prose and story. The narrator's voice seemed better suited to a "hard-boiled" detective story then this novel which requires a voice that can create a atmosphere of dread, longing, and mystery.
    I listened to a sample of the Steven Rudnicki version and like his intrepretation much better. I think a reader such as George Guidall, Bronson Pinchot, or even Campbell Scott would have been an excellent choice. Too bad the great Frank Mueller is no longer reading books.
