Inhaltsangabe

In me are the memories of a boy's life, spent in that realm of enchantments. These are the things I want to tell you....

Robert McCammon delivers "a tour de force of storytelling" (BookPage) in his award-winning masterpiece, a novel of Southern boyhood, growing up in the 1960s, that reaches far beyond that evocative landscape to touch listeners universally. Boy's Life is a richly imagined, spellbinding portrait of the magical worldview of the young - and of innocence lost. Zephyr, Alabama, is an idyllic hometown for 11-year-old Cory Mackenson - a place where monsters swim the river deep and friends are forever. Then, one cold spring morning, Cory and his father witness a car plunge into a lake - and a desperate rescue attempt brings his father face-to-face with a terrible, haunting vision of death. As Cory struggles to understand his father's pain, his eyes are slowly opened to the forces of good and evil that surround him. From an ancient mystic who can hear the dead and bewitch the living, to a violent clan of moonshiners, Cory must confront the secrets that hide in the shadows of his hometown - for his father's sanity and his own life hang in the balance....

    "don't expect suspense ..."

    "Boy's Life" is really just about Corey Mackensens life. This might seem obvious but having read "Swan Song" by the same author, I expected a bit more in the way of an actual plot. This book is a 20-plus-hour account of Corey growing up in Zephyr. Yes, he sees a ghost car, and a ghost kid, and a ghost dog. Yes, his father is troubled by the murder he witnesses but it never goes beyond that. "Boy's Life" is a quiet book that is mildly entertaining, and well read. It captures the magic of youth, and the idyll of small-town life. Yet I've listened to "Revival" by Stephen King just before "Boy's Life", whose plotline also starts out with a boy growing up in a small town, and it's so much better because it actually goes somewhere, plot-wise.

    If you are looking for a lengthy, quiet, well-read audiobook where you can miss a couple of minutes here and there without detriment to your audio-experience, "Boy's Life" is for you. If you're looking for light-horror suspense, choose something else.
