BEHEMOTH A History of the Factory and the Making of the Modern World

by | Read by Stephen Bowlby

History • 13.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

We talk a great deal about jobs. Now comes an audiobook about the places where the jobs come. And go. The author has written a marvelous history of the physical and intellectual effect that factories have had on the United States and the world, especially the fear and wonder that factories have inspired over their approximately 300-year history. Narrator Stephen Bowlby approaches this audiobook as a straightforward work of history, using his deep voice to simply tell the story rather than to put his personal imprint on it. He does, however, dive deeply into character voices that are entertaining but seem to come out of nowhere compared to his inelastic reading of the narrative.
