History • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

This book has multiple personalities. First, it’s a superb chronicle of the trial of Nazi Adolf Eichmann. Second, it’s about author Deborah Lipstadt’s personal journey and the British libel trial about the book’s content. Third, it’s a story about Hannah Arendt, a Jewish philosopher with controversial and divisive views about the Holocaust. From an audiobook listener’s perspective, the book has numerous shortcomings. First, there’s the question why the book, written in the first person by a woman, is narrated by a man. Second, reader Walter Dixon’s dry style is too detached for the controversial subject. And finally, multiple mispronunciations distract from the book’s accounts. All in all, this work may not be for everyone. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2011]
