Letters from Nuremberg: My Father's Narrative of a Quest for Justice

Christopher J. Dodd, Author, Michael Prichard, Read by, Lary Bloom, With Tantor Media $37.99 (0p) ISBN 978-1-4001-0539-7
While monotonous and slightly repetitive, narrative connoisseur Michael Prichard reads Senator Dodd's real-life tale in a classic, radio reporter manner that transports the listener back to the mid-1940s. Prichard's narration is clear as day; his brilliant reading is an ideal fit for the material. The story, composed of letters from Dodd's father during his time as a lawyer at the Nuremberg trials, is a personal and genuine tale that offers a fresh outlook into a complex moment in human history. The narration is cool and unwavering, never too emotional or sentimental despite the raw emotion of Dodd's letters. This nostalgic approach will appeal to older listeners, although younger ones might be bored by the sameness of his tone. In the end, the material itself is quite fascinating and Prichard's old-time narration has a distinct charm. Simultaneous release with the Crown hardcover (Reviews, July 9).
