THE YEAR OF VOTING DANGEROUSLY The Derangement of American Politics

by | Read by Elisabeth Rodgers

Contemporary Culture • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

If you haven't heard enough about the psychological, sociological, and pathological exploits associated with the two main presidential candidates this year, then this audiobook is for you. NEW YORK TIMES columnist Dowd brings her A-game to this work, using her trademark wit and cutting prose to highlight our particularly American descent into the political netherworld of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Narrator Elisabeth Rodgers's lively voice enhances the author's words, and her sarcastic tone fits this book perfectly. While there are times when her voice becomes monotonous, especially in long passages that mute some of Dowd's pungent comments, overall, her technique of enunciating every word and using pauses for effect illuminates Dowd's fascination with power and those who seek it.
