WAY OFF THE ROAD Discovering the Peculiar Charms of Small-Town America

by | Read by Patrick Lawlor

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

CBS News personality Bill Geist, known for his quirky enthusiasms, has shown viewers a stand-still parade, a cow photographer, a one-woman town, and many other scenes of small-town life. Geist's audiobook re-creates some of his reports, along with a few rants on airports, motels, and rental cars. Patrick Lawlor's cheerfully excited narration brings out Geist's descriptions of such experiences as eating at a Texas barbecue joint. Lawlor also adds a sarcastic tone to Geist's stories and projects Geist’s occasional dislike for some of his topics, such as figure-eight school-bus racing. Fans of Geist's reports might prefer to hear his voice, but, for the most part, his anecdotes of rural America are still entertaining as delivered by Lawlor.
