    Story
    (65)

    This play is a powerful account of the case filed by the American Federation for Equal Rights (AFER) in the U.S. District Court in 2010 to overturn Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment that eliminated the rights of same-sex couples to marry in the state of California. Framed around the trial's historic closing arguments in June 2010, 8 provides an intimate look at what unfolded when the issue of same-sex marriage was on trial.

    Would you try another book from Dustin Lance Black and/or the narrators?

    No, I would not try another book. I'm currently into the Theodore Roosevelt books by Edmund Morris and recommend them highly.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Ken Follet's latest continuation of his series great and will be up next.


    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    I dislike the presentation of the material.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from 8 (Dramatized)?

    I would not have listened to any of it. Dramatized to me would be the reading of the argument before the Supreme Court. Not something that sounds as if it was recorded in a High School Auditorium with the classmates and Parents going crazy when their favorite walked onto the stage.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're considering it, listen to a sample.
