I very much enjoyed this historical novel. Unlike other novels that use history as their backdrop this book is the "story" of history. I really enjoyed it.
I must admit, I knew very little about the assassination of President Arthur until listening to this book. It was very engaging and I enjoyed it immensely.
I would recommend this book to anyone including high school students. It is a very good book.
In the same vain as "Home Alone 3" or "Caddyshack 2" this book was a different story about the same thing as "A Walk In The Woods" but it was by far inferior to that book. I enjoyed listening to it, but it will not be a book I would listen to again and again as I have the aforementioned. The author was really not the best choice of narrator in my opinion. I do admire that he is a true "thru hiker". Often times I would get lost in the abundance of trail names.
I liked the book but I did not love it.
The male performer was like listening to finger nails on a chalkboard when attempting the female characters voice and accent. Awful!
This is the first book out of 167 individual titles that I could not stand to listen to for one more second. The story is completely ridiculous and the characters are totally unlovable. I am really very confused by other reviews singing the praises of this totally useless book.
I do not usually write reviews, for many reasons, but I felt this was warranted a few short comments. First, this was my first Randy White book. At times I felt like I had come in on the middle of the conversation... maybe because it was my first book. Also, I believe the ending was intended to be a cliff hanger but it seemed more of a blatant attempt to sell the next book. I could be wrong... this is just my opinion.
The characters were boring and predictable. I would not say it was a "bad book" but it will not be a book that I will listen to again for the enjoyment. It was kind of bland... not enough salt.
I have over 150 audio books in my library. I have never written a review, but I felt that I must comment that this is a great book and encourage other listeners to purchase it. The writer follows at least five story lines but you never feel overwhelmed or confused. The division into "books" also helps move the story along.
