I was so impressed with both the writing and the reading of this novel. I was captured from the very first word. Mr. O'Reilly did a superb job in the reading. I was intrigued by how he read it in the form of a novel. I learned many new things about the assassination, and I know that I will listen to it again. I will recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
Great history and background that is otherwise missed in history classes. Recommend reading for pleasure and content.
It starts off a little slow, but picks up quickly. Killing Lincoln provides a 360 view of the final days of Lincoln's life. Whether you're a history buff or not, you'll certainly enjoy this book and learn something about our nation's history in the process.
So much history I did not know about Booth. Had no idea of the extent of the plot against Lincoln and the other members of his cabinet.
I learned info. I had never read before I am a history buff and the book read like a spy thriller novel, but all facts. READ IT !!!!
Naration by Bill O'Reily is the best. I know there is inacuracies in some of the details. But extremly entertaning.
I loved the back stories that are not always brought to light in reading typical historial books.
There were many memorable images in the book. The events that came into play prior to the assaination. How Boothe was surprised by the reaction after the assaination. And how it all played out for those that were involved.
The way Mr O'Reilly emphasised events in the story, brought to light later in the book their ultimate impact.
Loved the book! I encouraged my family to read it. There were so many things I wasn't aware of, it brought history to light in human terms.
Even if you do not like history about wars this is a fun listen. Things like Booth was next to Lincoln at his swearing in for the second term and had to be restrained from attacking Lincoln.
Great book for a family listening if they know a little of American History.
Great Book!! If history class was this interesting I would've paid more attenetion. Only issue was that the book wasn't longer. Wasn't sure about O'Reily narrating the story but he did a great job. I'd give this book a 10 stars
