Robert Fass narrates this account of the February 14, 2018, shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and its aftermath. In fact, the aftermath is the true story here. Most of the audiobook is dedicated to the group of surviving Parkland students who, mere hours after the shooting, mobilized a gun-safety movement with astonishing speed and strength. Fass is a naturally commanding narrator, though his deep-voiced gravitas sounds a little awkward when paired with the extensive quoting of the Parkland teenagers. Otherwise, Fass strikes an effective journalistic tone that isn't too somber or overly performative. Author Dave Cullen's warm, conversational voice--heard as he reads the prologue, acknowledgements, and endnotes--is also a welcome addition.
