there are many stories that one could use and amplify to help tell the story of katrina, but the zeitoun family's story is one that will be shared for generations. eggers does a wonderful job weaving family history, a host of interviews and perspectives in this fantastic book. the narrator was good, and not distracting. i highly encourage you to spend your time with the zeitoun family.
I had heard rave reviews about Shantaram from friends that traveled India. It was simply a pleasure to listen to - amazing reading and such a fantastic range of voices and emotions come through the narrator. The novel itself is a beast and even though it is 800+ pages, I would of been happy for 800 more. Get. this. book.
