Narrator Eric Paulins does a serviceable job with this audiobook, whose central debate is over which symbol we want to best represent our nation--the open frontier or the border wall. He is easy to understand and presents each word flawlessly, using a low-pitched voice with a slightly nasal tone. Paulins also succeeds at putting some emotion behind his narration to push this history along. Diction, though, can be tricky, and Paulins sounds like he is delivering each word individually in a staccato intonation rather than weaving them together into sentences and ideas that flow and coalesce around a theme. Picking up his pace would have helped make this audiobook a more seamless experience. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
