Meet Phluttr - a diabolically addictive new social network and a villainess, heroine, enemy, and/or bestie to millions. Phluttr has ingested every fact and message ever sent to, from, and about her innumerable users. Her capabilities astound her makers - and they don't even know the tenth of it. But what's the purpose of this stunning creation? Is it a front for something even darker and more powerful than the NSA?

The story is whimsical and thought provoking. The production is more radio play than audio book.

Noble Prize winner T. S. Eliot wrote some of the best-known, most widely discussed poetry of the past 100 years. He was a daring and uncompromising innovator. With dramatic, original music, and expressive interpretation, this recording dramatizes why his works continue to influence literature - and touch contemporary listeners.

Included are "The Love Son of J. Alfred Prufrock", "The Hollow Men", "Preludes", and "Portrait of a Lady".

Aaah. I've never written a review but this is a necessary community service. The poor voices are as nothing when compared with the spooky weird music that they struggle against and finnally lose to. The last 20 odd minutes is just the the 'music'. Zero stars does not seem to be permitted so the single star is for those who enjoy self abuse.
