Twentysomething: Why Do Young Adults Seem Stuck?

Robin Marantz Henig and Samantha Henig, read by Pam Ward and Emily Durante. Blackstone Audio, unabridged, nine CDs, 10.5 hrs., $29.95 ISBN 978-1-4708-3983-3

Expanding upon a much-talked-about article she wrote in the New York Times Magazine three years ago, Henig teams up with daughter Samantha for this thought-provoking look at why the current generation of 20-somethings just can’t seem to get their act together. The dynamic between mother and daughter is apparent throughout the text, and the narration of Pam Ward and Emily Durante build upon this chemistry in their respective performances. Ward provides Henig a slightly more experienced tone than that provided to Samantha by Durante. However, the junior Henig is also a respected journalist—and this is reflected in Durante’s performance. Ultimately, mother and daughter offer different viewpoints on the millennial generation—and this makes for an endlessly fascinating audiobook. A Hudson Street hardcover. (Nov.)
