A fictional account of a Jewish boy in Germany in the late 1930s, DANIEL'S STORY was first published as part of an exhibit at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Its origin lends authenticity to this compelling, chilling story. Although narrator Daniel Carpenter-Gold's pitch is right for the voice of a teenage boy, his delivery is mediocre. The level of drama is uneven; at times it's too forceful for a younger listening audience. Further, the excess drama somewhat distracts from the important story told in the voice of young Daniel. Regardless, these shortfalls should not prevent listeners from taking advantage of this opportunity to learn more about a difficult time in history, especially one that is shared from such a unique point of view.
