The narrator was merely adequate. The story compelling. It was a worthy of your time read.
This is a very rich treatment of the internment of Japanese-Americans and German-Americans as well as Japanese and German expatriates living in the U.S. during WWII. While the U.S. was fighting for "freedom" in Europe and the Pacific, the government was subjecting its own population to the same kind of racism, bigotry, and injustice that the Germans and the Japanese subjected their own people to. And in the same way that the German and Japanese populations, for the most part, blindly followed the racist impulses of their own leaders, so did American society as a whole. The historical record of internment, so far, shows that there were no Schindlers in America hiding and protecting the persecuted population. This is must-read in the age of Trump and Republican dominance over American politics. We would be sorely mistaken to think that such violations to human rights couldn't happen in America again.
