Quotes & Awards

  • “Fans of Indiana Jones will find much to like about the tale, which was found in storage forty years after the author’s death, but the real appeal of this audiobook lies in its groundbreaking production values. This audio drama has as little in common with a traditional audiobook as a graphic novel has with a traditional work of fiction. The project took producer Beau L’Amour (Louis’ son) nearly a decade to complete; it includes a twenty-one-person cast, authentic sound effects that were collected and recorded specifically for this production, stirring original music, and all the magic of old-time radio. It is a bellwether of what audiobooks could become as the industry explores the possibilities of the increasingly popular medium. Verdict: Highly recommended to adventure fans and audiobook enthusiasts.”

    Library Journal (starred audio review)

  • “Beau L’Amour has pulled out all the stops in adapting an unfinished 1950s short story by his father into a sweeping film-like audio production. The music is evocative of classic 1940s film scores, and the lush and detailed sounds of rushing streams and ever-present jungle critters practically surround the listener. Seasoned professionals abound in the cast, making this a fine adventure. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
