THE GREAT DELUGE Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast

by | Read by Adam Grupper

Contemporary Culture • 28.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

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. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
