Audible Editor Reviews

Parents are forever reminding their children to choose their friends wisely, and in this classic by Edward Everett Hale listeners will hear how an association with one of America's most infamous traders can completely alter one's life. Jim Roberts, a veteran Audible narrator, performs this story with the confidence necessary to evoke its deep, patriotic message. The Man Without a Country is the regrettable tale of a young man who turns his back on his country, and because of a brash declaration, is forced to spend his remaining days stuck at sea.

Publisher's Summary

An officer accused of being a traitor says he "never wants to hear of the United States again". His wish is granted - and ends up being a terrible punishment.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this short story to a friend. It puts a fresh perspective on our current attitudes toward patriotism in the United States. I think this story would make great discussion for young people. This story exemplifies the heartache that can happen when we speak in the heat of the moment. A calm head and a moment's thought could have changed the character's life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best thing about this story is that it is short. It can be listened to in just over an hour between longer listens.


    What does Jim Roberts bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jim's voice is pleasant to listen to. He did not sound judgmental during the reading.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Speak in haste, repent at leisure.
