    Story
    (58)

    Forty years ago, Paul Theroux first went to Africa as a teacher in the Malawi bush. Now, nearing 60, he returns to travel by train, canoe, bus, and cattle truck from one end of Africa to the other. From Cairo to Cape Town, what he finds is recorded in the style that has stamped Theroux as a master of the travelogue. His curiosity and intelligent observations help create an unforgettable portrait of the varied land that is Africa today.

    "Painful narration accents good story"
    Overall

    Theroux's gentle misanthropy takes a sinister turn with the narration. The accents are painful listening. This narrator has been good with other material, but his similar, consistent, almost clownish characterization makes everyone the author meets seem to be a buffoon or evil. This is evidently not what Theroux intended. I fault the producer's selection of narratorial voice. Literally.

    No Logo employs journalistic savvy and personal testament to detail the insidious practices and far-reaching effects of corporate marketing—and the powerful potential of a growing activist sect that will surely alter the course of the 21st century. First published before the World Trade Organization protests in Seattle, this is an infuriating, inspiring, and altogether pioneering work of cultural criticism that investigates money, marketing, and the anti-corporate movement.

    How could the performance have been better?

    I wanted so much to listen to this book, but the narration makes it unlistenable. Why is there this trend toward extremely over-enunciated narration. It's irritating. Such an important book and it sounds as if a computer was used to tape it. Every single plosive t or p just popping like a pair of castanets . . ..
