STORIES FROM THE STORM Hurricane Katrina Survivors, in Their Own Words

by | Read by Carter Hooper, Celia Collins, et al.

Contemporary Culture • 2.5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2006

Audible.com, the digital audiobook service, performed a surprising feat after Hurricane Katrina. They took the headphones off several Gulf-based customers and replaced them with microphones. The result is a cross-section of stories that provide the details missing from the major news accounts. A woman huddling with her horse, a partying teenager who suddenly finds herself transporting dead bodies, each story has its own aspects of horror and surrealism. Listeners will find these everyday tales compelling because these people are so much like us. Cleverly executed, the production has no connecting narration, no interviewer's voice. Let's hope this project popularizes the concept of the documentary audiobook. R.W.S. 2007 Audies Award Finalist © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
