5.0 out of 5 stars An open and honest comentary on present day world !!, June 11, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Come September (AK Press Audio) (Audio CD)
This is the kind of rhetoric I miss in US magazines and newspapers. I don't even expect to see anything like this on TV. No body comes close. She has a fantastic global perspective. I am amazed that Ms. Roy developed a wonderful philosophy in India where majority folks are just like me "simple minded and too busy with day to day issues to bother about anything else".

5.0 out of 5 stars Succinct Narrative on Nationalim/Imperialism in the 20th Century, July 3, 2005
This review is from: Come September (AK Press Audio) (Audio CD)
This Audio CD is a charming introduction to those unfamiliar to Ms Roy like myself. I wish the audio cd was longer but I think it's a very powerful and intriguing listen for people who are interested in a provocative analysis of industrialized nations. The other thing which interested me was her thoughts on India and its current state of affairs and she touched upon them as well. Ms Roy speaks poetically and uses words very carefully and appropriately. I recommend this CD to anyone regardless of the person's ideology.

Arundhati is brilliant.Her perspective on U.S.global hegemony is dead-on.The enormous misinformation and deliberate falsifying of American activities all over the world is deconstructed brick by brick.A rare and clear and true voice in the Western wilderness.Get this CD and listen closely.There is much to learn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roy speaks, I listen, September 17, 2008
This review is from: Come September (AK Press Audio) (Audio CD)
Just a great great writer...Truly a joy to listen to on this CD, as well...This particular piece is pretty inspirational as it deconstructs so many myths that a Bush era has shoved down the throats of the world.

A CD like this should be a mandatory course requirement for young minds the world over to teach them to learn to think for themselves and, most importantly, question things rather than follow the rest of the sheep.
