THE ANTHROPOCENE REVIEWED Essays on a Human-Centered Planet

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John Green

Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

This audiobook, narrated faithfully by its author, offers a complex and insightful look at the various human experiences that shape us. John Green (THE FAULT IN OUR STARS) delivers impassioned reviews on a five-star scale of Diet Dr. Pepper, Canada geese, Halley's Comet, the Indy 500, and several other miscellaneous experiences, connecting each to his personal life and to current social issues. Green's narration flows conversationally, gentle through moments full of heartache that shifts seamlessly to whimsical delight during upbeat sections. Listening to the audiobook is essential to the full experience, as Green sings at one moment and plays the last recorded song of a now extinct Hawaiian bird in another. A beautiful and poignant performance. A.K.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
