Absolutely. This is requisite reading for Americans, especially those of us who weren't alive at the time Didion wrote Slouching. It captures a cultural movement.
Keaton has a recognizable voice and it flowed very naturally. She captured Didion's tone perfectly.
A film would never be able to do this book justice.
Yes. This book is very raw and honest. As someone who has suffered a loss similar to Didion's I could relate and sympathize with her. She made me feel like I was normal and that I had a companion.
How relate able Didion was.
This is the first audiobook I listened to that featured a more "mature" narrator and it made me feel like addition herself could have been reading to me. Her voice had a sense of history and knowledge to it that I greatly appreciated.
Absolutely not. I had to take breaks from this cease the subject matter is very far from lighthearted. Didion's words have a lot of meat to them and listening to it all in one sitting would have made it a less memorable and less impact full listen.
It's honesty and Junger's willingness to get close to his subjects.
I can't think of another book like this which makes it so important.
Being the author and narrator, there was no confusing what the author's intended inflections were.
Every passage was incredibly moving. I found myself bookmarking a whole lot and truly savouring Junger's words.
