    McCullough's John Adams has the sweep and vitality of a great novel. This is history on a grand scale, an audiobook about politics, war, and social issues, but also about human nature, love, religious faith, virtue, ambition, friendship, and betrayal, and the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas. Above all, it is an enthralling, often surprising story of one of the most important and fascinating Americans who ever lived.

    Davis says: "An outstanding biography"
    "I wish I could know the man personally"
    Overall

    For as long as the book is, it was done before I knew it. However, as the book came to a close, I felt such a strong bond to this great man. He seems to have seen himself as a ordinary man thrust into extraordinay circumstances, but in truth he was an extraordinary man. And his right hand was his incredble wife. And as I experienced their life through this book, I applauded their heroism and sacrifice, I raged as close friends betrayed them, and I cried as loved ones were lost. And in the end, I can't get over the fact that I would love to sit down with him to talk about life philosophies.
