Adam Grupper's evenly paced, clearly articulated style is a fitting vehicle for the delivery of Bob Woodward's third book chronicling the current Bush presidency. Like the text, Grupper's narration is steady and objective. Woodward's concise writing style and Grupper's distinct presentation guide the listener through the complex realities of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the controversy at home. Although he doesn't attempt vocal impersonation, Grupper's subtle inflections make the individuals involved, from the White House to the Pentagon and beyond, immediately recognizable. This brisk, lucid reporting is perfect for attempting to sift through the various "known knowns" and "known unknowns." M.O.B. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
