I've always been horrified by the events of November 22, 1963 - I knew the Warren commission missed the mark on several points. No matter how many documentaries I watched on the assassination, there was always something about that final, fatal event that made me grind my teeth. Something very ugly was lurking beneath the surface, something much more ugly than Lee Harvey Oswald. Stephen Hunter does an excellent job of laying it out - fact or fiction, this story is gripping and stimulating in so many different categories describing events and possibilities that had not occurred to me. After doing my own research and pondering this tragic story for over twenty years, now I know how it COULD have been done. Extremely well written and Buck Schirner was just the right fit to tell the story. Probably the most intriguing and powerful book I have ever been treated to - had to be a massive amount of research that went into this masterpiece. Only one problem . . . . . . . now what? What can I find that can possibly come anywhere near this . . .
Answered a very big burning question that I have had my whole life. How could a conspiracy have been pulled off? Stephen Hunter tells us exactly how it could have been done.
This was my first Buck Shirner book - he is fantastic
Cudos to Stephen Hunter - what an amazing work he has done here
This is a story I can relate to - the characters are as real as life itself. Narrator does an excellent job
Can't compare Plainsong to any other author - it is unique
Tom's delivery provides flavor - his ability to create characters with different voice inflections is very valuable
Just an excellent work - the kind of story that you can connect with. Finishing this story made me crave for more.
