THE BABY BOOM How It Got That Way, and It Wasn't My Fault, and I'll Never Do It Again

by | Read by Dick Hill

Humor • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

O’Rourke blends the poetic with the pedantic in this look at the Baby Boomer generation—the good, the bad, the depressing, and the amusing. Dick Hill's deep and crackling voice fits perfectly with O'Rourke's sardonic prose as he explores the birth, rise, and retirement of Boomers over the last half-century. As Hill captures O’Rourke’s self-mocking portrait of the self-righteous and self-centered Boomers, it’s clear his performance trumps reading the book in print. His tone and emphasis nail every punch line. At the same time, Hill’s timbre, with its hints of age, fits perfectly with the content. Listeners will find themselves laughing at line after line.
