TRAUMA FARM A Rebel History of Rural Life

by | Read by Michael Puttonen

Contemporary Culture • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Part memoir, part diatribe, part idyll, TRAUMA FARM defies easy classification, but narrator Michael Puttonen's relaxed style makes it easy to get caught up in this intriguing audio offering. The sense of quirkiness is enhanced by its unusual format and the setting on British Columbia's Salt Spring Island. Puttonen's effortless delivery and slight Canadian accent combine to create a mellow presentation that is perfect for the many anecdotes and reflections on family- farm life. Shifting smoothly to a more forceful gear, he ably conveys Brett's alarm at unsustainable mega-farm methods, then cycles down to express his practical resignation to some of the harsh realities of raising animals for food. By turns troubling and entertaining, this is a unique and enjoyable listen. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2013]
