IN OUR BACKYARD Human Trafficking in America and What We Can Do to Stop It

by | Read by Nicol Zanzarella

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

The author's message on human trafficking is grave, so Nicol Zanzarella treats it accordingly in her narration. However, the organization of the book itself challenges her effectiveness. Repetition may be an effort to reinforce details, but it also has the potential to desensitize some listeners to the horror contained in the narratives. Also, while Zanzarella infuses those narratives with humanity and compassion, their emotional impact may be further lost each time Belles interjects long sections of commentary. The issue of human trafficking is certainly one that needs exposure; Belles is knowledgeable in this arena, and Zanzarella delivers her message with appropriate respect and tone. Those who find the audiobook's organization effective will be well informed and prepared to contribute to the fight against this abomination.
