O'Reilly's "Killing Kennedy" was really good. This book was enjoyable but not as good.
Unfortunately, O'Reilly became very annoying by using the word "cavalry" hundreds of times, but pronouncing it "calvary" every time. There were a few other quirks—like saying "century" when he meant "sentry" or mispronouncing "pandemonium"—but the confusion of Golgatha with a horse soldier happened every few seconds for the first two and a half hours of the book and became grating—like a person who says "nook-cyoo-ler" and then manages to use it in every sentence.
Yes and I have. For history fans it is seldom we get an accurate book that reads like a novel. There are some points of conjecture, rather than detract, they make the book better.
Not applicable, rather, the character development of the historical figures was extremely well done. I learned something about each of them I did not know before.
Whenever the author reads his/her own book they provide emphasis where they intended it; if you will, O'Reilly adds depth to the book.
You thought you knew John Wilkes Booth?
Audible should figure out how to make the pictures from texts and non-fiction available to its listeners.
I commute about an hour each way to work and listen to audio books enroute. Sometimes I don't want to get out of my car because I'm at a really good place!
I was a little skeptical about this book, even though I like Bill O'Reilly. I've never been too interested in history - in school it was all about memorizing dates and names. Bill really brings the details to life and I was drawn into the story. Very good.
Back in time.
The character depiction of Booth and Lincoln and Grant.
The book was very well written and performed by Bill O'Reilly and I would recommend it to all United States citizens.
My first audible book
the whole conspiracy group
His ability to emphasize with emotion and yet narrate the truth
no, just very interested in the history and bringing the characters to life
Teach me more history Bill!
Chargin' hard cuz there too much diem to carpe!
Well written, well read and historically fascinating. The level of research will entertain and educate the listener.
If you are anything near a historical buff you need to read this book. The authors present a complete picture, in you mind, and you feel like you are behind the news cameras as it happens.
This books deal with the facts. Pure and simple. The authors takes these facts and presents them in a plain and simple style that captures the reader's interest.
An extremely entertaining telling of the conspiracy to kill President Lincoln. The information presented about prior attempts to capture or kill Linclon and the possibility of a conspiracy within the government was very enlightening. A must for history lovers.
I am a technology / computer geek and have been since I was 14 years old. Now 33 years old at the time of this description. I enjoy listening to books just before I fall asleep.
I usually do not read books or watch movies more than once. Even though I throughly enjoyed this book nothing stood out enticing me to re-read / listen to this book.
