I could not stop listening to this book once I started. I listened to it in the car, while I was cutting the grass, and while I was on lunch. I have learned more from Philip Roth about my country then from any politician, history book, or New York Times editorial. He is incredibly perceptive and, in my mind, is the greatest writer of all time.He truly tells it like it is.
I love both the author and the narrator. I thought the first two books in this series were wonderful.
However, this book was terrible from beginning to end. It should have been titled, "secret sex lives of our leaders during the cold war." Lots of graphic sex. Every female was beautiful, sexy, and willing to get in bed with anyone. 90% of the section on John Kennedy was about his sex life. Not much real history here. While the narration was of highly quality, the dubbed in voices of characters like MLK and JFK were comical.
This is one of the best books I have ever read. The narrator really helps make the story come alive. The story can be appreciated on so many different levels. You never know what is going to happen next.
