"Mix George Guidall's top-notch narration with John Gilstrap's taut, well-crafted story of a juvenile criminal running for his life, and the result is sure-fire entertainment. Guidall's use of nuance, tone and emotion to delineate characters marks him as one of the best narrators around. His portrait of 12-year-old Nathan Bailey, an orphan wronged by society and by his avaricious drunk-skunk of an uncle, fully develops Nathan's character, emotional state and survival instinct. Guidall's flawless performance enhances Gilstrap's intense story, making Nathan's plight more real and compelling. Nathan's Run is a model match of outstanding narrator and exceptional novel. J.A.B.
