SoundCommentary Review - Reader Jacob Norman's strong African-American voice and local accents brings to life both the pathos and brotherhood shared by Miles, his family, friends, and their fellow survivors. In this fully-voiced audiobook, Norman moves easily from the conciliatory voice of the preacher to the swearing, abusive gang members, and to the somewhat belligerent white soldiers controlling the site. Volponi's remarkable story graphically describes the devastation wrought by Katrina and the government's failure to protect and care for the primarily black residents of New Orleans; the haunting musical background adds much as well to the audio experience.Brilliance Audio
