MISSOULA Rape and the Justice System in a College Town

by | Read by Mozhan Marnò, Scott Brick

Contemporary Culture • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Krakauer delves into the case files of several high-profile rape cases in the college town of Missoula, Montana, between 2008 and 2012. Though one might anticipate that a male narrator would deliver Krakauer’s powerful stories, Mozhan Marnò proves a great choice. Her commanding tone and cadence keep the flow between paragraphs. Where the text suggests it, she imbues hints of emotion without being heavy-handed. She also provides vocal characterizations that are in line with Krakauer’s portrayals. Her most powerful delivery comes in women’s firsthand accounts of their sexual assaults. Scott Brick book-ends Marnò’s narration with an introduction and author’s note, though it would have been better to keep Marnò or have Krakauer do them himself.
