A detailed recreation of history. did not knnow until now, how much of the story I had missed by what was taught to me in school.
The detailed timeline.
Proper pronunciation of the word cavalry - Bill O'Reilly's mispronunciation as calvary drove me NUTS. Maybe he should have had his knuckles whacked with a ruler by the nun's in grade school a few more times. Doesn't anyone listen or guide these people as they record these books?
The incredible violence at the time.
Learning "details" about our history through captivating story-telling
He articulates clearly, slowly and with perfect fluctuation in tone at climatic instances.
Detailed Explanation of the last 2 weeks of Lincoln's life. It was also interesting to learn about John Wilkes Booth. I enjoyed the behind the scenes story of all that was happening in DC during these 2 weeks as the Civil War came to an end. I was surprised that those who were close to Lincoln warned him of the threats against his life. If only...yes, if only the assassination didn't happen.
I actually listened on 2X speed so O'Reilly spoke fast. It was read well. Obviously, he put a personal twist on the reading.
My brother told me to read this. He said 'it's a page turner...and unexpected in it's riveting story line." I was surprised how captivating the story actually was.
Yes I would listen to Killing Lincoln again because I may have missed some of the details of history as I listened the first time.
Killing Kennedy. Same author
Familiarity with author.
The book was very well researched including a lot of background.
Lincoln was my favorite character who does what he feels is best for the nation though he knows there are those who would like to end his life.
I could not come up with a favorite scene.
I found the book was a good addition to my information on Lincoln. Enjoyable enough that I do recommend a listen.
Not much of way for a spoiler to the ending of this book.
I likely would if the subject matter is fact based and not political in nature.
It needs no follow-up. It is what it is.
The amount of accurate information you hear is just amazing. I love how the author covered the facts and did not get bogged down in all the rumor and controversy.
Accurate information and very well presented.
He speaks very clearly and not to fast but keeps up a good pace.
No, but it did really make me think.
Great book, I highly recommend it.
Yes, but I think this book is probably better read than listened to.....
Too late.....Killing Kennedy is out....
I thought I could listen to O'reilly...in fact another reviewer said that even if you can't stand him personally the story is worth it.....I would agree, the story is excellent, but O'reilly really sounds like he's reading it, there is no characterization, or emotion which is really ashame because the story is very good
