Publisher's Summary

Sixteen-year-old Jack gets drunk and finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time: he is kidnapped, but escapes, narrowly. The only person he tells is his best friend, Conner.

When Jack and Connor arrive in London as planned for their summer break, a stranger hands Jack a pair of glasses. Through the lenses, he sees another world called Marbury.

There is a war in Marbury, which is a desolate and murderous place where Jack is responsible for the survival of two younger boys. Conner is there, too. But he's trying to kill them.

Meanwhile, Jack is falling in love with an English girl and afraid he's losing his mind. Conner tells Jack that everything is going to be okay. But it's not....

Andrew Smith has written his most beautiful and personal novel yet, as he explores the nightmarish outer limits of what trauma can do to our bodies and our minds.

    "Like an addiction, I just couldn't stop listening."

    This book was creepy yet I couldn't put it down. I felt a lot like Jack in that I couldn't keep away from the book. It was not my kind of book and yet I am glad to have listened to it and hope there is another to follow...

    "Great book"
    Would you listen to The Marbury Lens again? Why?

    Yes it was a great book


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story captivates you


    What does Mark Boyett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have been following Mark Boyett since I first heard him in B.V Larson's books. Plays each character well and brings you into the story


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had enough time I would have listen to it all at once however I listen to it in parts when driving I couldn't wait until the next time I drove.


    Any additional comments?

    I cant wait until the next book. I wonder what the blue ones are for
