Publisher's Summary

The Magician is the now famous story of two 16-year-old antagonists locked in the crucible of their high school from which neither can escape.
Ed Japhet gives a skillful performance of magic at the school prom. After the prom, Ed and his girlfriend are beset by Urek, the leader of a school gang that extracts extortion money by "renting" kids their own lockers. Ed is the only student who refuses to pay extortion money. Urek's fury at Japhet's defiance results in an attempted murder, a criminal trial, and death, with a shocker of an ending.
Selected by the Book-of-the-Month Club and widely taught in American schools, this book has sold over a million copies and has been published all over the world, including Britain, France, Germany, and as far away as Russia and Japan.

Poorly performed

This is an excellent book completely let down by the narrator. I have heard two audiobooks read by this same performer and he has ruined both of them! It's quite a skill to make W.Somerset Maugham sound as thrilling as a telephone directory. If this was the narrator's intention then he has suceeded brilliantly.

Different opinion

I loved this book -- I found the characters interesting and the reader excellent. If, like me, you are alway looking for unabridged titles, check this one out.
