ALONE TIME Four Seasons, Four Cities, and the Pleasures of Solitude

by | Read by Stephanie Rosenbloom

Personal Growth • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

NEW YORK TIMES travel columnist Rosenbloom narrates her provocative and timely rumination on the merits of solo travel. Her energetic delivery reflects her familiarity with her own work. Rosenbloom's crisp narration has an effective cadence, but her French and Italian pronunciations are sometimes off. Little matter, the substance of this audiobook--her singular travels and peregrinations in Paris, Florence, Istanbul, and her hometown of New York--makes her case for the value and pleasures of solitude in both strange and familiar places. The travelogue (plenty of tips here) and philosophical inquiry give even the most gregarious tourist something to consider in these hyperconnected times.
