The fact that its read like a thriller !! ! ! ! ! !!! !! ! !
I would have enjoyed the story if the narrator wasn't "barking" out at me for 7 hours. Get a new narrator. Mr OReilly should stay on his TV show
Boring narration. It was like listening to him on TV for 7 hours. No emotion. Just straightforward, bland narration
I loved the book and learned a great deal about all the players involved not previously covered.
Mr. O'Reilly has an overconfident seemingly arrogant style. I know, however he is "looking out for me." .....but Bill, I've listened to many many audiobooks narrated by very talented orators. My consistent experience is that the author is never better than any reasonably talented orator.
Certainly, people buy things just because the work is narrated by the author....I'm getting past that. I can watch you on TV any time I want.
Just a thought....hey what do I know? I'm just a fan...and a Chaminade alumni, just like you.
The part where RE Lee finally meets the Union generals....and waits...and waits.
all about the same...good but not great.
no...don't have that kind of time...but if I did, then YES
The audiobook genre is growing exponentially. Various publishers have invested in great production quality by using either one gifted narrator or using various actors to portray certain characters. I would like to see more of this effort made.
Listening to Bill O'Reilly narrate the book.
Knowing this was all true.
Was totally disgusted when nothing was done to the guy that was not watching the door at the theater. He was at the bar. Something should of been done.
GREAT BOOK,NARRATION,OVERALL STORY AND PRESENTATION..RECCOMEND TO ALL WHO LOVE US HISTORY AND HAPPENINGS
LAUGH AND CRY
Definitely. I will be searching for them now.
Without a doubt. Absolutely
I can't think of anything
Shock and Awe. Mostly Sadness and Anger that someone would kill this awesome man. Our country needs more people like this today.
I've listened to a couple books since and they don't compare. I think it's going to be hard to beat. I have never even been interested in history but this book made it interesting.
I read this on the recommendation of my brother. Won't take his advice again. There are too many errors for there to have been any serious research. Errors were pointed out, and O'Reilly's publisher corrected some of the "misstatements." Those corrections apparently didn't make it into this reading, so it is a good example of bad research. O'Reilly supposedly wrote this as a thriller, but the writing is repetitious and bland. Perhaps, as on his TV show, he thinks that if he says something more than once, you'll be be more inclined to believe it. And the reading is atrocious. If the writing is bland, O'Reilly's voice makes it worse, if that is possible. There is little intonation, just bland monotone reading. It is also rife with mispronunciations. Every time the word "cavalry" is used, it is pronounced "calvary." Once I might understand, but this happened so many times that I am convinced that O'Reilly doesn't know the difference. Save your money and your time.
Research better. Write better
Bland and full of mispronunciations.
It was an interesting subject, badly handled.
The history lesson was interesting...but Bill O'Reillly was not pleasant to hear for hours and hours...and yes I was familiar with him before this...his reading actually was distracting to the story....but worth a "read" for the history.
Bill O'Reilly needed to hire a professional narrator. The story line is good if you can get through the boring way it is presented.
i loved it from cover to cover. I couldn't put it down! I usually don't like history books but this one was so different. After the book i watched the movie the "Conspirator" and they went hand in hand.
Mary, I love how much she loved her husband! I felt bad for her.
