THE GREAT BRIDGE The Epic Story of the Building of the Brooklyn Bridge

by | Read by Nelson Runger

History • 27.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1972

Everything we ever wanted to know about the building of the Brooklyn Bridge is in this book, and we should be thankful for that. This is the kind of good, solid history that both informs and enlightens. Narrator Nelson Runger does an excellent job with this mammoth work. His stately delivery and authoritative baritone lend credence to the author's words and keep the story moving toward its exultant end. Runger is a master of understatement, and that works here. He puts McCullough's ideas front and center, where we can digest them and analyze their depth. The only drawback is that because of its length, the book and Runger's voice can wear us down. The reward at the end, though, is well worth the effort. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
