THE THREE AGES OF WATER Prehistoric Past, Imperiled Present, and a Hope for the Future

by | Read by Jonathan Beville

Contemporary Culture • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Jonathan Beville narrates clearly and makes the most of the rare moments of emotion in this audiobook. We need water to keep us alive, grow our food, make our computer chips, flush our toilets, and perform many other vital services. Sadly, as this audiobook makes clear, many parts of the world do not have access to usable water. Peter Gleick's "three ages" refer to the periods when we used what water was available, when we began shifting water around (as with aqueducts and deep wells), and when we will need to rethink our relationship with water to survive. The argument here is mostly cool and rational, leaving the narrator with little to do except get the ideas across. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
