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!
No, the book told it as it happened.
The most interesting aspect for me was that Oswald's fianc?? was out with Lincoln's son at the time of the killing.
No new shocking facts.
It was like being told a story by a historian.
Yes, it was interesting.
I am a retired Child Psychologist who delights in her three grandchildren to whom I passed on the love of reading. They read vociferously.
The narrator's voice was quick, but audible and narrated in an even tone, changing only when circumstances dictated, such as a shock, or a death scene. The narrator did not over-act in his tale.
The history and my learning hereto unknown facts.

History as you have never seen it before.
I believe that all school students should be encouraged to read this book, because of the history and importance to the development of our country. I will continue to read Bill O'Reilly.
Facinating, rivoting, detailed
Being George Washington. It too is captivating and hard to put down.
Too many great ones to pick, truely.
Maybe, if the setting is on vacation with no interuptions.
Can't wait for the movie!
O'Reilly's narration was spot on
The detail on the assassination is far beyond anything I've ever read about it.
more than you ever wanted to know
I wish Audible would provide a better product. I continually have to go back and try to find my place to listen. Audible apparently disables the ability to burn a book to even one disk so I can listen to it. The iPod just doesn't do well on audiobooks (probably unless you buy them from Apple). It is impossible to get a book burned to CD so I can listen to it and it never plays right on the iPod.
This is a wonderful performance and also provided a lot of insight into this event in history. Although I have read a lot about Lincoln, this included many events and facts I hadn't heard before.
Very well written (at least for an audio listen), it really kept my attention. I will listen to it again.
Thank you Mr. O'Reilly, as usual your insite was most enlighting. This is definately one of the best books that I have had the good fortuine to listen to. I enjoyed your naration and learned many things that were not taught in school many years ago.
It would have been nice to have the opportunity to know how America would have faired had this fanatical assination not been successful.
This book gives perspective to the tremendous amount of change that has occurred in American History. Lincoln was the ultimate representation of
Say something about yourself!
Yes! It contains important details of a critical time in our history.
The Confederate attempt to get back to the Carolinas.
Yes, this one is best!
If Bill O'Reilly said that the sky was blue, people would come out of the woodwork to disagree with him. Likewise, anytime a historical book is written, people have disagreements. I enjoyed the book and learned from it.
