9780141021393: Will They Ever Trust Us Again?: Letters from the War Zone to Michael Moore

Will They Ever Trust Us Again? brings together hundreds of the letters that sent to Michael Moore - author of the international bestseller Stupid White Men - to show the reality beneath the propaganda. He's sparked a furore and turned up the heat by revealing what they didn't want you to know about the war on terror in Fahrenheit 9/11. Now the ordinary men and women - from GIs serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, mothers and wives at home, veterans who've fought around the globe - who've been inspired to speak out by Michael Moore have their say. Their views vary from the Bushwhacked to the patriotic, but they all feel let down by government, they know the human cost of waging wars for the rich - and they've had enough. Angry, moving and funny, this book shows who's really winning the battle for hearts and minds on the front line... 'Devastating ... his best book to date ... it is the dissenting voices of America's soldiers and their family members and friends that give this book its weight and power' Sunday Times 'Heart-rending ... damning' Daily Mirror 'Hard-hitting' Guardian Author of international bestsellers Stupid White Men and Dude, Where's My Country, Michael Moore's 2002 film Bowling for Columbine won the Anniversary Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and the 2002 Academy Award for Best Documentary. His 2004 film Fahrenheit 9-11 won the 2004 Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, and is the highest-grossing documentary of all time. Moore's 2007 documentary Sicko, focused on the American healthcare system, was also nominated for an Oscar.

About the Author:

Author of international bestsellers Stupid White Men and Dude, Where's My Country, Michael Moore broke all box office records for his documentgary Fahrenheit 9-11 which won the 2004 Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

From AudioFile:

Filmmaker Michael Moore shares emails from his Web site, combining them into an audiobook. Multiple male and female readers bespeak the writers' anger, sorrow, and profanity. All the correspondence is from U.S. service members, and all letters support Moore's anti-Bush politics. The author reads a personal introduction, and a woman gives Moore's short acceptance speech for his Oscar in 2004. A change of narrator every minute or so delivers pleasant variety, and the care taken to match the voice with each letter's sender deserves praise. Still, the tedium produced by hearing five hours of disconnected paragraphs with the same message could have been lessened with a judicious abridgment.
