Intense and poignant, Dos Passos's book is a gut-wrenching and frightening tale of loss of innocence. Listeners completely empathize with the hopes and dreams of the three young protagonists, only to be shattered at their inevitable upheaval. Guidall's deeply emotional and reflective narration has the perfect range of humor, passion and temperance to best translate each character into a living, breathing entity. Softly ironic but respectful of textual integrity, Guidall brings such an immediacy to Dos Passos's haunting work that listeners are torn between keeping their tape players on all night and wishing the nightmare would end.
