I love the seriousness with which Marc Cashman reads Max Brooks book. I don't think the experience would be the same, if the narrator did not read it with some seriousness. Seriously love it. So calm and evenly paced, but with a gravity that behooves the line of story.
The way he reads it lends itself to the fact that, when your reading it , you want to lose yourself in it. You want to believe that this is something we have to seriously be concerned about RIGHT NOW, and not in an abstract, sort of "haha, oh this author" sort of way.
Marc Cashman reads it as though he were preparing a group of people for this eventuality. It works.
I originally got this to listen on the bus and train ( fantastic for it, makes trips go quickly) but then one night, I was working late, and plugged it in to the speaker system. It was an interesting experience where I would actually stop doing anything and just listen, like I was in a lecture hall, just taking it in. Awesome.
Granted, it also made me mildly paranoid about that fact that my store would not be terribly defendable with its 180 degree giant picture windows. Hahaha.
Great reading by Marc Cashman. I highly recommend it. :)
