9780142428030: Apt Pupil

The audio tie-in to the Tristar movie release this October, starring Sit Ian McKellen, David Schwimmer, and Brad Renfro is the story of Todd Bowden, a 16-year-old all-American high school student who is stunned when the Holocaust is addressed and then dismissed in the classroom after only a few short weeks. Todd sets out to research the period and finds Kurt Dussander, a Nazi war criminal living under the assumed name of Arthur Denker. Todd blackmails Arthur into revealing the evil atrocities he once committed, in exchange for his silence. The two begin a dangerous relationship which spirals out of control and produces fatal results. Unabridged.

About the Author:

Stephen King, the world's bestselling novelist, was educated at the University of Maine at Orono. He lives with his wife, the novelist Tabitha King, and their children in Bangor, Maine.

From AudioFile:

Hearing the late Frank Muller narrate Stephen King's thriller is like a welcome visit from an old friend. Muller, who died in 2008, left behind a tremendous legacy of work, including a series of recordings of King books recently re-released. The story of a disturbed boy who becomes entwined in the life of an unrepentant former Nazi is one of King's most frightening works, even without vampires or things that go bump in the night. The novella is far superior to the movie of the same name. King, with more than a little help from Muller, explores the internal workings of the boy and his mentor in ways the movie could not. Bravo. M.S. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
