It took a few false starts before I committed to the book, due to the overly academic tone of the introductory chapters, explaining what will and what will not be covered. But once I got beyond that, it was a thoroughly interesting book. Moreover, the topic is absolutely essential and deserving of a comprehensive telling. In the current political climate, it's not so hard to believe these accounts of genocide. It's harder to believe that some of our attitudes have changed so little.
Also, the criticisms of the narrator are well-founded, if a bit overboard. He mispronounces a few words, most notably *epitome* and its derivations. And honestly, it is a bit flat, but not so much as to ruin the book.
What would have made Murder State better?
A better narrator.
Would you recommend Murder State to your friends? Why or why not?
Not in audible format.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Aside from mispronouncing words and place names, the entire narration was lifeless.
Any additional comments?
The story and subject matter are compelling and deserve a far better presentation.
