Question: I am listening to Orfeo on audio CD and am just a bit past the section on Olivier Messiaen’s “Quartet for the End of Time." The "reader" gives certain sections in the tone of a computer voice (and that sounds appropriate)--however, I cannot find any commentary on this "computer character" in any of the reviews. Can any other readers enlighten me on this "character"? Thanks.
Michelle I also 'read' the audio book, and found the robotic voice a bit confusing. Near the end, you find out that these are all "Tweets" that Els sends during his time on the lamb.
Elizabeth Sulzby Tamara and Ken, there is quite a bit on YouTube about the music Powers discusses in Orfeo. I have now listened to the audio CD twice and read the print book once. I am working my way through all of Powers' books now. Thanks for your comments and Likes.
