The book is exceptionally well written, especially its dealing with the relationships with Abigail & John Adams & Jefferson...but the narrator paused a lot & seemed to be taking drinks of water!
well done.....excellent research and very detailed but not boring.....learned a lot about the early years of our great country and the struggles that great men and women overcame
I knew nothing of John Adams before listening to this book, and now I'm on a course to learn more about our nation's birth and subsequent struggles. Loved it.
The history of the signing of the Declaration of Independence and those involved especially John Adams is a must for anyone interested in American History.
This is seminal work about John Adams. The reading captures the essence of the story and the man. Highly recommended.
John Adams was an uncommon man. Blessed with a wonderful wife, he accomplished much during a momentous time of world history.
My only criticism of this read is with the producer, who seemed to no be around after the first segment. Of course the narrator must breathe, swallow and take a few seconds to gather himself before reading the next chapter, or perhaps take a drink of water or tea. But the pregnant pauses had me thinking something was wrong with the playback, and the narrator's swallowing and breathing distracted from the otherwise excellent reading
This man's life is a story of great value. It is an amazing way to learn about the beginning of the USA and understand in a truly deep way where so much of what we have came from, and is sure to inspire awe.
As usual David McCullough brings out little know facts to paint a vivid picture and bring the story to life. His descriptions of the characters allow you to understand their place in time and circumstance.
