COLOSSUS Hoover Dam and the Making of the American Century

by | Read by Norman Dietz

History • 18.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Michael Hiltzik has created what is surely to become the definitive text on the building of Hoover Dam as well as its impact on the nation. Narrator Norman Dietz’s straight reading is well paced and expressive, ensuring that the detailed text is digestible to listeners. His delivery of Hiltzik's fascinating anecdotes helps make this authoritative work enjoyable. In particular, Hiltzik's fluid writing reads like a well-written novel, and when coupled with Dietz's inflective performance, the text is most engaging. Listeners looking for a nonfiction title that is accessible and well told should treat themselves to COLOSSUS. J.R.G. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2010]
