Narrator Matthew Waterson's crisp diction and light accent suggest the author's Eastern European background and personal connection to propaganda. Pomerantsev's own family was investigated and persecuted by Soviet agents. In this audiobook, he uses his intergenerational family history as an entry into his discussion of messaging today--as it is now taking place on the part of individuals and governments using various technological platforms. Waterson's accent distracts from what is an otherwise impressive performance. However, he effectively shifts his tone as the author's discussion moves between journalistic reporting and accounts of his own family.
