BACARDI AND THE LONG FIGHT FOR CUBA The Biography of a Cause

by | Read by Robertson Dean

History • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Gjelten mixes a smooth cocktail of histories--of the Bacardi family, their rum company, and Cuba--and Robertson Dean's delivery of that mix both pleases and holds the listener's interest. With his deep, soft voice and subdued tone, he comes across as nearly whispering, but his delivery is not soporific. His intelligent interpretation consistently brings out the author's meaning and represents his thoughts and opinions clearly. Dean's pacing is just right for the material; he tells it like a story. The variety of material--the switches from family members to corporate interests to national and international politics--helps to keep one's attention from flagging. Anyone interested in the Bacardi company or in Cuba should enjoy this audiobook and Dean's skillful performance. W.M. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2017]
