I do not know much about the specific battles and events leading up to the assassination of Lincoln. This is an interesting presentation of history.
I would read reviews before spending money on another Bill O'Reilly book. He says that the book is written in a entertaining style. I would not give it that much entertainment value.
The performance was dry. Bill described the men on horseback as
I luv Audible
In the top tier
it was non-fiction write as a story and not restating facts. Very interesting. You know the story by tell DID AN GREAT JOB of putting this together
His unique story telling ways
The first and the last part of the book are true to the title; however, the bulk of the book revolves around military maneuvers. Not being a big fan of military history this section moved slow for me--others might enjoy it. The authors have excelled in giving a vivid picture of the events of the assassination and the aftermath, it just takes awhile for them to get to it.
I enjoyed the work, and found it entertaining. However, for a hardcore Lincoln junkie, the story was a bit thin. It was not even in the league of Goodwin's Team of Rivals, but overall, the history was sound. The performance was excellent. It did keep you on your toes and wanting more.
The details of the story behind Lincoln's assasination are fascinating, but it was made less compelling by Mr. O'Reilly's reading of his book. He read it as if he was setting up a news program or an expose, not in the voice of a good storyteller.
Killing Lincoln not only tells the story of the assassination of President Lincoln but give you the back ground and the what else was happening in the days before the event. He present the facts in a clear and concise manner. Bill O'Reilly read of the book is done with a passion that makes you take notice.
A great work and well worth reading. I have recommended this book to several of my friends.
really takes you back to the time of the civil war and events surrounding it. thought the performance was good but bill fell into his tv comentator voice a few times. it was almost like he was commenting on a current event. i enjoyed the listen.
This a great read I have read many Civil War books and this is among the best. It reads like a novel and yet is filled with fascinating historical facts. I would recomend this book to anyone who has an interest in Lincoln or the Civil War.
