  • A Visit from the Goon Squad

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 8 mins)
    • By Jennifer Egan
    • Narrated By Roxana Ortega

    Story
    (881)

    Jennifer Egan brings her unique gifts as a novelist and short story writer to a compulsively listenable narrative that centers on Bennie Salazar, an aging punk rocker and record executive, and the beautiful Sasha, the passionate, troubled young woman he employs.

    Laurene says: "Excellent, subtle, moving"
    "Good book, not so great narration"
    Overall

    While the author brilliantly manages to switch between voices, decades, perspectives and writing styles, the narrator doesn't manage to keep up. Ortega simply doesn't have the range necessary to pull a book like this off. Would have been much better if read by a larger cast, as was done in
    Let the Great World Spin by Colum Mcmann
