The audio version by Bill O'Reilly was a great story. I thought that he did a very good job delivering the story. His tone and tempo was just right.
It is interesting to me that I did not know a lot about the story of Lincolns assassination and hearing all of that detail and behind the scenes information really brought the story to life.
The best part of O'Reilly's reading was the way he was able to move the story along. His tone and tempo was even and contributed to the story line. I have heard other audible books where the readers voice was so annoying that it detracted from the story.
I wanted to listen to this book in one sitting. It kept me on edge with each chapter. Although I
yes. Exciting book
you thought you knew Lincoln
A few factual errors but a great book
Yes because there was a lot of information and would like to make sure I did not miss any
The history that is not common knowledge and the detail about the people involved
No I have not
The entire booked moved me.
I was struck by the fact that not much has changed in the way government works. Learning about all the in-fighting and sniping at the president and his policy amazed me. This man along side George Washington was selfless and wanted to heal the country with compassion rather then an iron fist and we can all learn from him.
So many details of this major event are lost in history. This book brings the reader into the moment. Excellent reading. Fascinating book.
It is up there with Steve Jobs biography.
The part in Ford's Theater made it so real.
I do not read books a second time. So, no I wouldn't.
This book is excellently written and read. I enjoyed the format that Mr. O'Reilly used. He chose to write this book as a mystery. I learned a lot.
I liked this book because of the detail of the events that lead up to and following the assassination. Lincoln's steadfast mission of reuniting the country, the intrigue and multiple story lines coming together, fragileness of our great country, close proximity of the battles to the Capitol, unbelievable logistics of the intense war, the men and women of great character, and the evil ones too, all made for history so much better than any fiction ever written.
Like being there.
Can't think of one.
Credibility and believability.
The actual killing of President Lincoln. I could actually envision the terrible act as if I were there in the theater.
Want more audio books after this one.
Yes. Packed with anecdotes that put you on the scene.
The Grant and Lee surrender...
The religiousity of Lincoln...too many others to tell.
It made me realize that the tumult and divisiveness of life and politics that we experience today is not new. The impaired human condition goes on.
My first audible. An excellent experience. Thank you!
