Contemporary Culture • 16.5 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

This provocative book by professor Allan Bloom laments the decay of the humanities, the decline of universities, and the spiritual rootlessness and un-connectedness to traditions of today’s students. The author’s intelligence and passion about his subject are strongly conveyed through Christopher Hurt’s lilting reading. Hurt’s tenor voice is clear and compelling, and he uses appropriate inflection. Tape markings are good; pace and sound are consistent throughout. Hurt’s reading is an effective way to absorb the book. He seems to draw you into deep conversation, discussing the concepts with you, rather than leaving you to struggle over them. If only we had the opportunity to argue! J.A.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 93]
