Assigned to write an autobiography, high-school senior Robert Radkovitz instead creates a sound portrait of his life as he remembers it. Looking back, he hears his mother's singing, his grandmother's mysteries, Mexican soap operas, Poe, poetry, and, most cherished, the voice of his absent father from a single tape of one of his radio shows.
Told in a collage of voices, Seek describes Rob's search for his father, a search pursued not through San Francisco's streets, but through the labyrinth of the airwaves. Psychic readers, baseball announcers, pirate DJs, friends, and teachers join a rich, ringing aural autobiography that's as joyfully comic as it is compelling. Download and start listening now!

    " This book is a decent book i recommend this book to thoughs who like back in the day times such as all radios no tv as well as a type of mystery he wants to go on a search does he find him? Personally i don't think the book was really for me i got lost quite easy but it was alright. "

    " Rob Radkovtiz searches for the unknown DJ father thru the radio. Unusual format, script like, good read "

    " This would be good as a reader's theatre performance. "

    " The radio show / stage format took a little getting used to, but in the end I greatly enjoyed it. Rob's evolution in his quest to find his father, and then simply share his own voice, was really interesting given that it was done though his fairly unique interest in the radio. "

    " I gave it two stars because it did not make much sense. It was mostly about a radeo stason that they lisined to all the time. Robert is assigned to write a autobiography. He lisined to the radeo and remenberd some of the good times he had. But i dont think this book is very good. "

    " A boy listens to far away radio channels trying to locate his long gone father. Written as a radio script. Clever and moving. "

    " Loved it though I don't remeber all of it. The last story I shared with my mother. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trevor | 10/18/2012

    " Extremely interesting premise -- I understand why it was written as a script, but I think it was this format that made it a little off-putting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 9/1/2012

    " A teen's autobiography unfolds through a collection of sounds and voices. Rob's father left when he was a baby, and his life has been spent looking for him as a DJ on radio. Rob struggles to accept his father's choice and himself through the airwaves. "

    " Would put this as a message book but a good, solid boy-centered book with an interesting enough plot. "

    " I was so hoping that this would be better, since I really love so much of Fleischman's other books. And the premise was good, and the way he played with sounds had a lot of potential, but I just didn't feel like the execution was quite right. "
