This audiobook is based on filmed interviews of people who were imprisoned or who worked at the Guantanamo Bay prison, where suspected terrorists were held after the 9/11 attacks. Some prisoners remain. Tom Taylorson is a solid narrator, but not hearing the actual voices of those interviewed is a lost opportunity. Including at least some of those real voices would have taken fuller advantage of the audio format. This is still very much worth a listen. Taylorson keeps a steady voice even when he's describing some of the outrages that occurred and the trauma experienced by both inmates and staff. His calm is welcome-- the facts don't need juicing by the narrator to stir emotions. G.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2020]
