THE WAY OF THE WORLD A Story of Truth and Hope in an Age of Extremism

by | Read by Alan Sklar

Contemporary Culture • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Through a series of interconnected real-life stories, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ron Suskind paints a portrait of the United States post-9/11. The nation, he believes, is in the midst of a mighty struggle to reestablish its moral authority. In one especially revealing scene, he describes the detention of a young Pakistani professional near the White House at the very moment President Bush is speaking about civil rights to a group of black leaders. These vignettes translate well to audio, and Alan Sklar renders them effectively for listeners. He refrains from the emotionality that the author shows in his narration of the introduction. If Sklar had taken that approach, it would have grown tiring by the end of the work. As it is, he carries the work effectively.
