Where does Soul at the White Heat rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Fairly low, I think, because it is so hard to listen to. I have been intrigued by the words I could catch, though. Joyce Carol Oates is a wonderful writer.
What other book might you compare Soul at the White Heat to and why?
I just listened to The Lost Landscape: A Writer's Coming of Age by the same author. I enjoyed it so much, I decided to give this book a try again. Such a disappointment.
What didn’t you like about Susan Ericksen’s performance?
Her style of performance does not seem to work for me. Her words flow like predictable ocean waves with no apparent connection to meaning. It feels absurd, like conversing with someone whose verbal and nonverbal communications oppose each other.
John Denver said his audiences’ suddenly began liking his concerts more after he took Pavarotti’s advice to concentrate on the meaning of each word as he sang it. Perhaps Ms. Ericksen might consider following this advice also.
Any additional comments?
This is a book I am going to have to read.
