He employs clear enunciation and expert pacing to immerse the listener in Reuben’s mind…Brown’s performance will engage young listeners who enjoy being on tenterhooks and feeling deliciously scared as they inhabit a dark world. He uses inflection to give unique voices to the many characters. Mrs. Genevieve, Reuben’s moral compass, is especially well voiced with an appropriately foreign but grandmotherly accent.
