The fact that New Orleans is still recovering from the devastation brought upon it by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in the fall of 2005 makes this audiobook all the more prescient. Tying together both personal narratives and an official record, Horne provides an insightful yet heartrending and critical account of the events. The anguish and frustration of Horne's words are magnified in Andrew Barnes's soulful voice. Barnes's voice also works well for the inspirational moments of this tragedy, of which there are many. Throughout the production, Barnes maintains impressive energy and consistency with a rhythmic delivery that proves hypnotic. Horne's words and Barnes's performance will certainly be moving to listeners. L.E. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
