I don't write book reports.
A good friend of mine got me into audiobooks many years ago. He let me borrow his copy of "1776", the birth of United States. Ever since then, I've been fascinated with David McCullough and have listened to all of his books. He can do no wrong when he writes about history. This is my second time at listening to this book and it's like getting a front row seat in class, especially when David McCullough narrating his book.
When Audible had "1776" on sale, I had to buy it to have it in my library. If my friend didn't lend me his copy of the audiobook, I would had ever had discover the best historian of all times. David McCullough is like a grandparent that you wish that you had because you can appreciate when they speak. The knowledge from this man is second to none.
Good but tedious!!
Very fascinating depiction of a very important moment in history. Takes a lot of concentration on the listener's part. But I just came off of "Unbroken"!
Great book but I would of liked to have more history regarding the events that ended the war. It could have been a teaser for another volume.
Like an episode of America Experience on PBS. Lots of good history set to life.
A good read. Thank you.
This book is a must for history buffs. Honestly I could go on and on but let it suffice to say that this is a great book and it was narrated splendidly. I highly recommend it.
This book was very interesting and educational. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about George Washington as a person and a General. I can't wait for my children to listen to this as well. Thank you Mr. McCullough
Expertly written and narrated definitely worth the read! I'm going to check out other books by David. A great book!
I love his voice! It brings so much to the story! I cannot imagine reading this instead of listening to it. Historically accurate and shares the story of our fore fathers.
This audiobook was masterfully done and spoke with true patriotic passion. I enjoyed every aspect of this audio book I will probably listen to it agian in the future.
I would have to say the story of Henry Knox was my favorite of this read. His triumphs over the elements and his misfortunes had me.
