I love Scott Brick -- he is by far my favorite reader. So I'm not sure if it was his performance or the words on the page. But THE DRAMA!!!!! So ANGSTY!!!!! And the book was too long and often repeated itself.
I have to admit that I'm a stickler for pronunciation...I had my "nerve set on edge" by the nariator's mispronounciation of some of the words in the story. That said, it's a good listen.
Perhaps it was Mr Brick's performance - perhaps it was the novel itself -- but if ever hear a character say, "you're not listening" again it'll be too soon. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
I usually enjoy Brad Meltzer's books, but this one just seemed to fizzle. Great detail and history, but a very weak storyline. I was aggravated and relieved when it was over....
This is your average historical-fiction book. I would have given it two stars but because of Scott Brick's as per usual brilliant narration I added an extra. Worth a credit????? I'm on the fence
If the narrator intoned one more time "THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES>>>" I would have screamed.
There was just no story there. A disappointment.
I read in another review that the narrator was melodramatic but I don't see how he could have been otherwise, given the content. This was my first and last Meltzer book. If you enjoy whiny, unrealistic characters and ridiculous plots, this is the book for you.
One of the worst pieces of writing, ever. Nothing connects, and your expected to believe Beecher figures this stuff out without any thought process. Terrible.
