Publisher's Summary

Mr. Artur Sammler is a man who has lasted, from the civilized England of the '20s and '30s through the war and death camps in Poland. As he moves now through the dangerous streets of New York, curious and disinterested in all he sees, he ponders the future of life on this planet.

©1970 Saul Bellow; (P)1993 Blackstone Audio, Inc.

    "annoying narration detracts from story"

    I got through Chapter 1 and gave up. I was impressed with the writing, but the one-note narration did not encourage me to continue with this in the audiobook format. You may ask if I listened to a sample online before ordering, and I ask myself as well. What was I thinking? I'll have to finish this book in the print format, which isn't the worst fate to suffer.

    Story
    "America is heading to a disastrous fall"

    If you like to listen to people whine, read this book. If you don't, its a tough listen, but it's a good story

    America is going down, that's the message from the 1960's. Given what has happened since, it looks like Saul Bellow is about right.

    A holocaust survivor, who saw mighty Europe come undone, sees America's problems and the weakness of modern culture
