I can't even begin to imagine the number of hours of research that went into compiling such a thorough account as this. I very much look forward to reading more books like it. The statement in the epilogue was correct. "Every American should know the astounding facts surrounding the life and death of Lincoln."
Before listening to this book, I just knew the names of the folks involved. This narrative made events come to life once more so I have a much fuller appreciation of events and more importantly, their meaning and impact on our nations history.
Loved it!! Thanks Bill! History books do not give any justice or credit to the amazing contributions President Lincoln gave to the United States of America. This book is a must read for every American!!
Never read it.
Learning so many facts I didn't know.
No extreme reaction. Sadness for Mary Todd when Lincoln was shot.
I really did enjoy this book, however I thought the end on the day Lincoln was shot was way too drawn out with unnecessary details. Liked Bill as narrator.
Narrator killed this story!! I even checked out the printed book to see if the correct words were used in print - YES
You can imagine how many times the cavalry might be arriving on the scene in a book about the Civil War. Now imagine how distracting it was to hear it pronounced as calvary each and every time!!
Then after Seward's carriage accident there was a sentry placed at his door. But sentry was pronounced every time as century. Ruined the entire book for me. I find it hard to believe no one proofed/edited the spoken book as well as the print book. I actually meant to award NO STARS for performance but could not get the one star to go away.
Profesionl, hard working woman who travels weekly, enjoys life. My best Friends are Michael and Scooter. Nonfiction books are the best!
I enjoy everything about Lincoln and this book was so well done.
Bill just makes you believe in him and what he is saying. I trust what he tells me. I listen to all his books
When President Lincoln was shot it's hard to imagine how he suffered. We are so fortunate to be in this day and age with modern medicine.
Another book very well done
