    Overall
    "Nothing New, Narration Awful!"

    Well, I am quite familiar with the Karen Silkwood story, what with the movie and stuff I've gleaned from the internet and books.
    This added nothing new to my knowledge and the narration really did get on my nerves, I don't know whether or not that this was aimed at 10 year olds or younger, but she spoke very slowly and carefully and annoyingly so! The 'book' lasted 53 minutes, and I'm sure I could have read it in 20!
