Would you listen to Katrina again? Why?
I might listen to certain sections
What did you like best about this story?
I am from New Orleans and had to evacuate during the storm, so there were gaps in my knowledge of what the city had been like in the days after the storm.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
The narration was sloppy at times; he says Senator "Marty Landrieu" at least twice but other times he reads "Mary Landrieu" correctly.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This is non-fiction and the story is very personal to me as a New Orleanian, so it is hard to judge what the reaction from others would be. There are sections I objected to, such as the characterization that "Whites didn't want blacks to come back to the city". There were some whites who may have felt that way, but he is in no position to say "whites" in general felt that way.
Any additional comments?
There is some sloppy journalism here and there. He mentions that one character places a call every morning as the East Coast is "one hour earlier". He probably meant that the East Coast was an hour ahead, but technically the East Coast is an hour later.
