BETTER TO HAVE GONE Love, Death, and the Quest for Utopia in Auroville

by | Read by Vikas Adam

Biography & Memoir • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Vikas Adam is the contemplative voice behind this true story about one family's pair of mysterious deaths. Adam is sober and measured throughout the detailed explanation of John Walker and Diane Maes's arrival in India, and their eventual untimely ends. Fans of journalistic storytelling will be drawn into this overlapping tale of missing parents and the adult children who are exploring the legend behind their demise. Adam's delivery reflects the gravity of the author, the son-in-law of the deceased. The overall effect for listeners is of tuning in to a caring reporter who is shifting through facts, memories, and anecdotes to help us all make sense of an unsolved tragedy.
