    Early on the morning of February 17, 1970, in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, a Green Beret doctor named Jeffrey MacDonald called the police for help. When the officers arrived at his home they found the bloody and battered bodies of MacDonald's pregnant wife and two young daughters. The word "pig" was written in blood on the headboard in the master bedroom. As MacDonald was being loaded into the ambulance, he accused a band of drug-crazed hippies of the crime.

    Carmen says: "Rocked My World"
    "Cringeworthy. Bad."

    What would have made A Wilderness of Error better?

    Make it about the crime and the evidence, not about the author.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Errol Morris again?

    Nope.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Pruden?

    Someone with a recognizable inflection in their voice.


    What character would you cut from A Wilderness of Error?

    The author, who kept including himself in the narrative.


    Any additional comments?

    Save your credits for a better book.

    Story
    (2421)

    A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified "dinery server" on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation: the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other's echoes down the corridor of history.

    Elizabeth says: "thoroughly enjoyed"
    "Barely got through it."

    What disappointed you about Cloud Atlas?

    It was complicated and uninteresting and made more complicated and uninteresting by the narrators. I can stomach a poor read of a good book but a poor read of a boring story and I'm out.


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Mitchell again?

    Probably not.
