MAD AT THE WORLD A Life of John Steinbeck

by | Read by David Colacci

Biography & Memoir • 15.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

John Steinbeck is among America's premier social realist authors. His books are classics. Yet many people do not know him beyond his literary canon. This audiobook seeks to remedy that. It explores the author's often troubled life as well as his creative genius. David Colacci offers an able and consistent narration. His tone, while not conversational, is easy on the ears and keeps the narrative flowing nicely. His pauses are strategic, allowing listeners to take in important points before going on. He also varies his tone to fit the material. The book will break little new ground for listeners well acquainted with Steinbeck's life, but for the rest of us, listening will prove enlightening.
