I would one more book from Bryce Courtenay and / or Humphrey Bower.
I believe that the book was far too long and would have benefited from a sharper eye during the edit process. The flow of the book was satisfactory, details were well done, simply just too long.
Thought Mr. Bower's performance was exemplary.
The book had redeeming qualities. It provided insight into a different perspective of the war from a nation involved in the conflict, from people that the reader could connect with, and experiences that were historically correct.
Difficult for me to recommend because of the aforementioned length of the book. If the reader is a 'skimmer' than I would recommend it.
Psychotic, Toxic, Spellbinding.
Amy was my favorite character. She was calculating and devious and she draws the reader into her web of psychosis.
Although Mr. O'Reilly's voice does tend to lack emotion during key points, I enjoyed the well researched content.
Similar in title to Killing Lincoln, both incorporated factual details that made a connection to me as a listener.
I prefer Killing Kennedy to Killing Lincoln. I believe the reason is simple, as a child growing up in the 60s and 70s I could relate to the Kennedy children, loved the elegant Jackie, and wanted desperately to believe in Camelot.
For one brief shining moment, Camelot.
No, I found the lack of expression in the reader's voice to be distracting. Although the introduction indicated that the reading would be in a particular style / format, I found that not to be the case.
I found that the description of Andrew Johnson to be particularly interesting. Especially his (disputed) role in the assassination of Lincoln.
I needed to hear more passion in the reading, a better defined beginning and end to each segment. It was far too monotone.
A moment in time.
