FAILURES OF STATE The Inside Story of Britain's Battle with Coronavirus

by | Read by Ben Onwukwe

Contemporary Culture • 16.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Ben Onwukwe is appropriately respectful to the seriousness of this audiobook. The U.S. is not alone. The global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic could have been less devastating; history is already showing how world leaders failed the public. This exhaustively detailed work, written by investigative journalists at Britain's SUNDAY TIMES, looks at COVID in the United Kingdom by following Prime Minister Boris Johnson through a series of truly shocking administrative missteps. Skillfully, Onwukwe captures the vocal styles of key public figures. His performance of Johnson is almost darkly humorous as the politician dithers between encouraging lockdowns one moment and supporting a return to normal behavior the next. To understand what happened in 2020, this audiobook is required listening. S.P.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
