Library Overdrive Audiobookread by Rachel Kushner I didn t even consider this book when it first popped up Telex From Cuba was a little too politically dense and long There was a good story inside but I remember the time effort I put in and wasn t looking forward to that experience again Plus I have a paper copy of The Flame Throwers which I ve started and stopped too many times the damn print is tinySo with low expectations I downloaded the public library s AudiobookI m BLOWN AWAY BY Racheland what she did with her VOICE Absolutely I think this is a phenomenal novel and I still can t get over how perfectly magnificent her voice is for the character of Romy Hall Her audio voice is so darn praiseworthy I just can t say it enough about the impact I felt it made on her book From start to finish I was bound tightly listening to The Mars Room I could visualize the st
