INTO THE RAGING SEA Thirty-Three Mariners, One Megastorm, and the Sinking of the EL FARO

by | Read by Erin Bennett

Contemporary Culture • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Another audiobook that describes the tragedy of a ship sinking in a hurricane and the drowning of her crew? Not so fast. This true story involves the captain's questionable decisions based on outdated weather maps, the unrelenting demands of global capitalism, corporate bottom lines, and a crew that was caught in the middle while desperately trying to do their jobs. Erin Bennett narrates this nonfiction account in a strong, assured voice that moves the action along at a lively pace. She varies her tone slightly to accommodate character voices but otherwise plays it straight. That's also a problem, though, because Bennett sacrifices emotion and feeling for technical sophistication. It would have helped if she had injected a bit more personality into this exciting audiobook. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2018]
