by | Read by James Gleick

Contemporary Culture • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 1999

James Gleick is a terrific writer, and FASTER is extremely entertaining. As narrator, the author imparts an infectious joy in his delivery. For those of you who know Gleick's work, however, this is not remotely on the level of GENIUS or CHAOS. There are no difficult scientific theories to clog the mind and slow our thoughts. This is all surface and no depth. Things are moving faster, yes, but what profound impact will that fact have on our multitasking lives? Gleick doesn't say. Still, when the tape ended I wanted more. Oh, brave new world! M.D.B. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
