I was quite interested in the this book originally. There was a great leader that I wanted to know more about. I should have realized by the length of the book that it might require more patience than I was used to putting into a book.
This book did a great favor for me in that I now listed to audio books one chapter at a time. I'm currently listening to 25 or so books simultaneously on a loop. I finish one chapter and move on to the next book and so on. This lies me to finish 10 or so books every month.
The detail in this book as excruciating, down to seemingly every conversation Winston Churchill ever had with anyone. To make it worse, I found it terribly difficult to decipher large swaths of dialog because they were being read in a "Churchillian" voice.
Lots and lots and lots of info. Im glad that is over.

great content but audio sounds tinny from car speakers. great performance by narrator and characters
I am an avid reader and listener. I especially love imaginative fiction when I am "brain frazzled" from heavier stuff.
This is an enthralling story of the life and times of an incomparable human being. It is well worth the time.
As a churchill fan I knew I had to read/listen to this book. I have read many biographies of the great man, including Sir Martin Gilbert's glorious 8 volume tome. Still, this book offered much to me, not least of which was the fabulous performance by the narrator. He did wonderful voices, with Churchill's being, I think, one of the best to be found. I look forward to the next volume, which I'm headed to purchase presently.

While initially off-putting, Davidson's mimicking of Churchill's voice was, for the most part, an added benefit to the narrative.
Loved it--totally absorbing.
