Benjamin Taylor delivers a plainspoken performance of this audiobook; little fanfare or theatrical nuance is added to the work. This style may suit the subject matter well; after all, Cather is often associated with the simple majesty of the American plains, and simplicity governs this work--despite the intriguing energy of its title. Taylor's workmanlike narration echoes the structure of the audiobook as a whole. His steady pace and consistent tone lead the listener into a pattern of narrative, excerpts from letters and reviews, plot synopses, and author insights starting with Cather's youth and ending with her death. There are few surprises with either content or artistry, but this is a fine glimpse of the life of one of America's most notable authors.
