What made the experience of listening to Late Victorian Holocausts the most enjoyable?
So nice to listen to an engaged and sophisticated author read by an educated reader with a good voice who doesn't mispronounce names.
What did you like best about this story?
We get a glimpse of our future on how climate change will devastate the poor and improve the position of the elites, unless there is real resistance. The descriptions of the famines impact in the global south are harrowing.
What does James Patrick Cronin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The thing is he was great because he didn't make the audio experience substantially worse then if I read the book. I would love to read all the time but audio books are just more convenient.
If you could give Late Victorian Holocausts a new subtitle, what would it be?
The political economy of famine? No, I like the original subtitle.
Any additional comments?
It's great that Verso is finally putting some of its catalogue on audio. I hope they do this for all Mike Davis books. Then they can start on Perry Anderson.
