WASTELAND The Great War and the Origins of Modern Horror

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Andrew Eiden

History • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Andrew Eiden deftly delivers the author's examination of a popular literary genre through the lens of history. Through books, movies, and more, noted historian Poole traces the roots of modern horror to a singular event that shaped the world forever: WWI. His thesis is that the barbarism of war never fades. With his earnest intensity, Eiden sounds like an energetic history professor who knows he's appreciated by his audience. While the descriptions of war can be horrifying indeed, both author and narrator weave an engaging and insightful listen that captures the reality of battle with a sensitive and respectful touch.
