Well read, haunting and depressing catalogue of some of the USA's least admirable characteristics. A story still unfolding.
Would you consider the audio edition of The Book of Daniel to be better than the print version?
Yes - the way Doctrow writes, shifting eras from past to present to in between, it's sometimes hard to understand which time period he's writing about. Having the performer do the reading helps the listener to understand which time period is being discussed.
What other book might you compare The Book of Daniel to and why?
I've read that Daniel is compared to Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye. I can see that similarity in their personalities.
Which character – as performed by Mark Deakins – was your favorite?
Daniel - who's motivations and personality is impacted by the era and at what stage of acceptance/defiance Daniel is experiencing about his parents death.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
