Wanted to use this for in class reading with my students and was really disappointed! It is simply a public television show featuring different people commenting on their perceptions of the book.Please do not give them your ninety five cents, because they were not upright in their description of this audio download.
Must like the main characters, be intelligently written and feel like I learned something at the end.
A highly rec. radio show, especially for downloaders like me because it doesn"t outdate (unlike any NPR episode) and has a greater intellectual depth than most. (e.g. American Life). The major critiques you may read are that they mainly inverview book authors. This is true, but not for sales pitches, rather because these people have someting interesting to say and can add more depth and flavor to an interview than impromtu subjects or news related clips. All in all the best radio show for variety, human interest and with good depth. No not all episodes will interest you 8/10 are very good.
