Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Each adaptation — from picture book to movie, screenplay, novel, and audio — has diluted the mystery and magic of Sendak's classic. Dion Graham's reading of Eggers's interpretation has little to recommend it. The enigmatic plot is made commonplace; the listener follows the young and troubled Max through a series of banal family problems — arguments with his mother, her boyfriend, and his sister until he runs away and sails to the land of the Wild Things. Graham's narration is uninspired; he style would be better suited to a spy thriller, and the voices he creates — particularly those of the Wild Things — are more histrionic than otherworldly." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Loosely based on Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, Eggers's novel follows the confusions of a boy, Max, making his way in a world he can't control. During a fight at home, Max flees to the island of the Wild Things and becomes their king. But the Wild Things want as much from him as he wants from them.
