I had no trouble with the narrator, and thought the story was just fine. I was curious about how things would play out, as the author had painted himself into a number of corners, and, no doubt, would come up with some clever explanation for things that appeared to have happened.
Those that gave up on the book partway cheated themselves. They thought they were reading a bad book. Had they continued on to the end, though, they could have truly appreciated just what a horrible book this was.
When a reader expends a certain amount of time reading (or listening to) a story, the author should at least show a little respect for the reader. This author failed at that.
For many of us, John Adams has always seemed like a footnote to revolutionary history. This book not only brings him to life, it teaches just how important the man was. The author also doesn't shy away from showing us reasons that Adams might not have gotten the acclaim he deserves.
There is plenty of background to put the story in perspective. John and Abigail are not the only characters to be brought to life. Very many of the players of the time pass through this book.
The performance of this audiobook was pleasant. The pace was just right.
