Mesmerizing, if it weren't so depressing, Palast delivers some hard-to-refute facts about the contemporary political scene from the fraudulent elections of 2000 and 2004 to advance economic schemes of the haves to virtually enslave the have-nots to the war in Iraq and the obsession of oil. Palast questions the authority of the leaders of this "armed madhouse," often using their words, documents and resources to bring to light some rather disconcerting truths. As narrator, Palast keeps the pace consistent, taking his time with the more complicated passages, while surging forward on the straightforward parts. His ironic and even deadpan tone provides laughs for his listeners. This audiobook employs a host of cameo voices, including Ed Asner, Janeane Garofalo and Larry David for various quotes. Asner proves engaging with a raspy deep voice that could easily land him a career in audiobooks. Harry Shearer's commentary on gambling and homeland security is also very entertaining. But a few guest vocals may have been better delivered by the author. In the end, it's not the voices that are important, it's what Palast has uncovered.
America needs more fire-breathing investigative reporters like Greg Palast. He is passionate about America and passionate about exposing the crimes, greedy plots, and crooked world-influencing schemes of the Bush Administration and its international cronies. What's refreshing is Palast's ability to also mock himself as his excoriating, deeply researched screed unfolds. Does he relent as we near the end of the final CD? No, Palast ramps up the intensity and outrage, as real patriots are known to do. Add a star-studded guest list of readers, actors, activists, and various others to Palast's angry and deeply aware delivery, shake gently, and watch the fireworks.
