9780060742720: Millions CD

It was a one-in-a-million chance. A bag crammed with cash comes tumbling out of the air and lands right at Damian's feet. Suddenly the Cunningham brothers are rich. Very rich. They can buy anything they want. There's just one problem -- they have only seventeen days to spend all the money before it becomes worthless. And the crooks who stole the cash in the first place are closing in -- fast.

A funny, brilliantly clever and utterly thrilling debut novel that is, quite simply, unforgettable.

Performed by Simon Jones

About the Author:

Frank Cottrell Boyce is the author of Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth, The Astounding Broccoli Boy, Cosmic, Framed, and Millions, the last of which was a New York Times bestseller and was made into a movie by Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle. His books have won or been nominated for numerous awards, including the Carnegie Medal, the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize, and the Whitbread Children's Book Award. Frank is also a screenwriter, having penned the scripts for a number of feature films as well as the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics. He lives in Liverpool with his family.

From AudioFile:

The patron saint of audiobooks must surely have been watching over this production. It's got colorful, carefully crafted characters, a cinematic story--a British youth, obsessed with saints, finds a cash bonanza--and a dazzling read by Simon Jones. Boyce's story operates as a clever mystery, a parable about greed, a lesson in recovery from loss, and an example, like HUCKLEBERRY FINN, of a book about children that works for all ages. Narrator Jones's strongest gift isn't his array of British accents (which he does effortlessly) or his timing (which is impeccable); it is his empathy--an uncanny ability to put the listener inside the mind of a spiritually conflicted child. If you're wondering what separates the good from the great in audiobook narration--check out this Golden Voice. R.W.S.
