    The Great Decision tells the riveting story of Marshall and of the landmark court case, Marbury v. Madison, through which he empowered the Supreme Court and transformed the idea of the separation of powers into a working blueprint for our modern state.

    Tim says: "Brings to life the early days of the USA"
    "Great story, spoilt by Audible truncating it"

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

    Recommended as a fascinating judgement, backed by a well rounded examination of the historical background


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Not applicable


    What about Peter Jay Fernandez’s performance did you like?

    The narration was clear, expressive and sonorous.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was cool to realise the clever twist that Marshal CJ made at the end of the judgement


    Any additional comments?

    The audio book ended poorly, because the Appendix, where the judgement was narrated in full in the original production, was obviously truncated part of the way through in this Audible production. Poor form Audible!
