The book contains a lot about the civil war and how sad the results were for Lincoln, things would have been a lot different for the south if Lincoln had lived.
The deed itself was most memorable, the villain broke his leg during his escape, something I had never heard before.
First time to hear O'Reilly.
yes the book kept my full attention.
I will listen to it again.

Booth, great insight into the man
What do you really know about the assain who killed Abraham Lincoln?

Lincoln. Great man.
The way the author presented in linear time. What was happening during each battle back in Washington and the front.
Yes - But not sure what kind of book it would need to be.
It was like listening to the Factor for 8 hours.
I enjoyed learning the back-story of Lincoln's assassination however, Bill O'Reilly's performance was so bad, I wouldn't put myself through it again.
The historical background - the story we've never been told was fascinating.

None I have read
A slower delivery

Very well written and complete composition of an historic event. I learned more than I ever knew about Abe Lincoln and the tragic end to his life. Very well worth the read.
How quickly the plot,in hisorical events , developed and leadd to a fast movements of events leading to the assination, The insertion of many minor characters added to the devlooping drams. Exciting movement of events.
The Secretary of War. I did not know he was envolved in any plot against Lincoln.
The doctors working on Lincoln to keep him alive and the motivation to have him die in his own bed.
None. Very surprised that I was not aware of many details of the assination.
Outstaning choice for people inteested in history.
