What an amazing story. This book was thoroughly researched. You learn about the people, the places, the time. I could not get enough.
Masterfully written and performed, I enjoyed learning the truth behind this infamous couple. I highly recommend it. Who knew Clyde only was 5'5" 120 pounds or that both had been crippled?

Haven't read the e book / Print version. I'm not sure, maybe this was re recorded but I didn't pick up any lisping or "issues-sss" with "words-sss" ending in "essess- sss". ☺
Clyde was a professional. He spent his shares-sss of ill gotten ...loot on better armament and faster ... transportation.
Jonathan Hogan kept a perfect pace for the story. He is easy to understand and added to the story. All kidding aside, he did a very good job. So many voice talent these days snort, gulp, swallow and gum chew. I'm talking big named people. Usually my first and lasting impressions... get mention in my reviews. I didn't have those with this audio book.
This elicited excitement and kept my attention throughout. Frankly that has become more rare these days. I knew a lot about Bonnie and Clyde, yet I still learned somethings.
This work was great value for my investment of time and Audible credit! I enjoyed it!
Jeff Guin gave me just what I was hoping for: a detailed, true life story of Bonnie & Clyde. The book gives details that are interesting and not lengthy or boring. The story proceeded at a good pace and didn't become bogged down. I learned new facts about the people and the era while being entertained. For a historical book you can't ask for much more than that.
This book was extremely informative and entertaining. This is one of my favorite books that I have stumbled across in a long time. This book sets the standard on how to mix entertainment and education
Slow at times and maybe a little depressing but the hear the real story in context makes you feel like you're right there in a 1934 ford V8 with bullets whizzing by and wondering how they lived as long as they did.
Just a blast to listen to for anyone who loves history and especially depression Era life and crime.
Not sure I agree with the "True, Untold Story" part of the title as it seems that a lot of the story has been publicized. There are certainly some new insights and facts, and it does answer some questions that arose from other accounts, such as the Warren Beatty movie. I did enjoy the book, and found the epilogue contained new material to me -- namely how the family and others associated fared after the death of the Bonnie & Clyde. I found the narrator's voice alright but somewhat monotonous. If you enjoy history and learning more about the time period and characters, you will probably appreciate this book.
This true story, with all it's dirt under the fingernails details, is one of the best things I've bought on Audible. The narration wasn't great, but wasn't the worst (that award goes to Life by Keith Richards). As with Hells Angels by Hunter S. Thompson, the national media is always the third partner in crime.
