BEFORE IT'S GONE Stories from the Front Lines of Climate Change in Small Town America

by | Read by Jonathan Vigliotti

Contemporary Culture • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Jonathan Vigliotti's experience covering natural disasters for CBS News gives a journalistic feel to his audiobook about disasters' effects on small towns. He warns of more devastation in the future. As his recollections of the sights and smells of devastation in Hawaii take on the urgency of a news report, his descriptions of attempts to escape flames add dramatic emphasis. He discusses towns where disasters have hit, pointing out significant landmarks such as a restaurant where townspeople gather to discuss the changes in their lives. He keeps to his own voice, creating characters with inflection and tone. Vigliotti occasionally adds a lighter touch, such as humorously rattling off his hasty preparations for field reporting.
