Library Journal - Library Journal
When a stolen car recklessly encounters three flatbed trucks illegally carrying hazardous waste through Manhattan's Holland Tunnel, the ensuing explosion closes the tunnel at both ends. Eleven ordinary people are left alive in the tunnel and must somehow deal with this most extraordinary situation. The story is told mainly through a series of first-person narratives by some of those in the tunnela teenage girl off with her parents for a "family weekend," a young prostitute, a reserved older man, a brave young career womanand by rescue workers on the outside. Most commanding is a discredited, former EMS chief, Kit Latura, who arranges to get into the tunnel to lead the survivors to safety. Effectively narrated by 13 readers, the voices portray fear, courage, and even ironic humor as the story is bounced from one narrator to the next. Interestingly, we always see Latura's actions from another's point of view. The only problem with this recording is technical in nature: sometimes a loud, clear reading voice is followed by a soft, low voice, and in order to adequately listen, occasional volume adjustment is required. An engrossing novelization of a 1996 Sylvester Stallone film, this may have a place in your popular collection. Recommended.Juleigh Muirhead Clark, Coll. of William & Mary, Williamsburg, Va.
