The voices and performance were great. I may be a sucker for the British accent...but really enjoyed it. The story was fast and interesting, but ultimately the pieces didn't fit that smoothly in the end. It also seemed to spin out of control and push things too far for my "suspension of disbelief." But Burton and Swinburne were intriguing and different characters. And the story took enough turns to keep me guessing.
No masterpiece, but definitely a fun read.
Yes. The facts are worth accumulating. Gives some interesting tidbits and good overview of US History.
The reading was too slow for my taste. Listened to a lot of it at 1.5x speed.
The facts were interesting enough that I wasn't sorry to read it. I would agree with a lot of reviewers that the book takes a more liberal slant. Its hard to write an interesting book with any sort of conclusions that won't be influenced by the authors personal views. But I didn't think the slant was overblown enough to make the book one-sided or useless.
