reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Hurricane Katrina overwhelmed and exhausted those who experienced her wrath, and this book has the same effect on its listeners. In nearly 30 hours, we receive a short lesson in meteorology, innumerable first-person accounts, and enough political blame and accusation to overflow the Superdome. Adam Grupper's voice occasionally annoys with its nasal qualities. He delivers an uneven performance--at times that of a dispassionate journalist, at other times that of an overperforming thespian. The inconsistency of technique disengages listeners from the story to focus on the performer, never a desirable attribute in an audiobook. With a few mispronunciations, the listening experience deteriorates even further. R.L.L. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Douglas Brinkley brings back the devastation wrought by Katrina and the botched response to it. He outlines the warnings, the storm itself, the collapse of the levees, and the tragic aftermath. Not much additional drama is needed, and Kyf Brewer doesn't provide it; rather, he reads in a reportorial style, making sure you get every word. He shows warmth for the many heroes, such as the unnamed boatmen who risked their lives rescuing people, as well as contempt for Mayor Nagin, who hid out in a high-rise. He also brings home the stench created by heat, carcasses, sewage, and rotting food. Just when we might let our memories of this tragedy dim, this well-done abridged version is a great reminder.
