Excellent book but I wish the man would learn to pronounce 'CALvary' instead of 'CAValry'. Very unsettling to hear that.
Because its basicially a history lesson, it ranks a little lower than some of the really good stories i've listened to. But it got my attention very quickly, and kept it throughout the book.
One of the most memorable things about the story was the fact that it wasn't just Lincoln the assassins were after, it was the vice president and the secretary of state. I just don't remember learning that in the several american history classes that I took in school.
O'Reilly has great voice for narrating this book, very clear and concise. However, every time he said the word
One has to listen to at least the 1st part about the civil war battles all at one time, or you'll loose track of the battles and the participants.
Get the book, its great!
Loaded with facts and details about a significant time in history. I was impressed with the level of research and attention that went into telling this story
Very clear and compelling voice. He brought the story to life making it a pleasure to listen to.
I enjoyed listening to this on my way to work. May have missed some key points due to distractions but this kept me interested. This is a book I would like to also have the hard copy of in order to go back and check facts or look up a map. Maybe I will listen a second time to make sure I did not miss anything. It made me interested enough to search on the internet for more information. It read like a good story and not just a factual account.
The story of the conspiracy to assassinate Lincoln many times misses the perspective of times and the emotion involved before and after. While the book does not do a great job of showing the repercusions of the assassination, the story of the conspirators was well done. Many little known pieces of information were given in an entertaining way. Definitely would recommend to anyone interested in history.
Yes. This book is totally different from his other books and enjoyed the history completely.
Yes as it was a lot to take in.
That it captured your attention to the point you wanted to keep listening.
I was born and raised in a foreign country and I have never taken American history in college, but this is a great book about the last days of Lincoln. The book covers much more than just the assasination plot, it goes in to the battles that lead up to General Lee's surrender. Read like a thriller, Killing Lincoln is a book that you don't want to stop listening to. Convieniently broken down into small chapters it is great for listening to on your drive to work or anytime that you have a few minutes to stop and listen.
Yes...As read by Bill O'Reilly, it was hard to turn the reading off.
Obviously President Lincoln. we're reminded why he is one of the most inspirational leaders, of all time.
Although, we all know how the story ends... it's hard to shake off the sickening feeling, of such a loss.
It takes skill to make histroy come alive.
Details that led up to and after the assinaton.
President Lincoln because of his vision for unifying the United States from a Christian world view.
What a great deal of information on the top players during the War between the states.
Lincoln of course. He was the reason I got the book and there have been several new shows on this subject.
I like it when the person that wrote the book does the reading. You hear it the way they wanted the story told.
I was amazed at the amount of information that I had not heard about Lincoln's wife and General Grant's wife and what life was like in Washington DC at the time.
