A nice refresher. A book that everyone should read
Bill is a very dynamic individual.
The detail of the story you never hear in history class.
The details of the assassination plot.
His emphesis, voice deflection.
Great listen and I was fascinated by how much information contained in the book I had never heard before. At first I thought the narration was a little dull, but I got used to it pretty quickly and the story more than made up for it.

The detail in which the personal details of each character came out.
His love and admiration for president Lincoln
I loved the details brought out in the book and really enjoyed O'Reilly reading the book himself.
Facts about the end of the war and Lincoln's assassination were very interesting.
Never. He is not a good reader. Not only is his performance forced but he butchers the language. There is a difference between

Enjoyed the book, well researched and developed. My only criticisms are of the performer. Small things, no doubt; please pronounce cavalry correctly, not calvary. Also, please pronounce sentries correctly, not as centuries.
Think this would have been a better read than listen.
It was very, very good. The story was riveting; the reading was perfect. I so wanted to holler out to Lincoln to avoid the inevitable. I've never heard the whole story of the events and the people surrounding the greatest president until Reagan.
Killing Lincoln was very informative, and I enjoyed it very much. I found out a lot of new information I had never known about the entire time period.
My husband and I listened to the book together. It was very interesting to hear all the little details of the intertwining stories. I don't normally like to listen to books read by the author, but this book was a pleasant surprise.
