    Described by the Chicago Tribune as "a classic," The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt stands as one of the greatest biographies of our time. The publication of The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt on September 14th, 2001, marked the 100th anniversary of Theodore Roosevelt becoming president.

    Mike From Mesa says: "Very, very good, but very, very long."
    "Finest biography I ever read"
    Overall

    This is without a doubt the best biography I have read yet. It doesn't hurt that the subject matter is so facinating. But I was relieved to find that the author kept a fairly even hand in his writing. Not falling into hero-worship where the subject does no wrong nor the more modern tendency of tearing the hero down. The book is very easy to listen to and the narrator is excellent.

    It's June in Montreal, and Dr. Temperance Brennan, who has left a shaky marriage back home in North Carolina to take on the challenging assignment of Director of Forensic Anthropology for the province of Quebec, looks forward to a relaxing weekend in beautiful Quebec City. First, though, she must stop at a newly uncovered burial site in the heart of the city. The remains are probably old and only of archeological interest, but Tempe must make sure they're not a case for the police. One look at the decomposed and decapitated corpse, stored neatly in plastic bags, tells her she'll spend the weekend in the crime lab.

    Story
    What would have made Deja Dead better?

    Originality Story started good but about halfway through you feel as if you had read it already. its filled with every cliché available in the genre. Serial killer fixates on main char. Best friend is pulled in, no one believes heroine (although there are 5 bodies) Heroine searches for a body in abandoned area of city, at night, in the rain, same time the killer happens to return.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Nothing from this series. maybe something from Charles Todd


    Have you listened to any of Barbara Rosenblat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. Narration was very good.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Good Narration.. Story was decent but predictable.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitly. in the movies Dante gets his revenge. In the book he drags them slowly over the coals, digs up every dirty little secret, sets events in motion and lets them destroy themselves utterly


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dante- Simply the way he evolves and untimately understands


    Have you listened to any of John Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes, and just as good as the others
