WHO'S KILLING THE GREAT WRITERS OF AMERICA?

by | Read by Arte Johnson

Humor • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

By making fun of five popular writers (plus a comedian and a filmmaker), the author of this satire doesn't have to dwell on just one genre. And the overarching story links the segments nicely. Each chapter focuses on one of the writers and is written in that style. There's the smug smarminess of Sue Grafton, the pack-in-everything-technical-no-matter-how-much-it-interferes-with-the-story style of Tom Clancy, the almost suffocating detail of Danielle Steel, and the let's-turn-the-everyday-things-of-life-into-something-sinister plotting of Stephen King. The relative shortness of the sketches and a decent mystery make for good listening. Arte Johnson is capable as the reader, but the volume level in his reading his uneven. He's too quiet at some points and too loud in others. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 07/ JAN 08]
