I really enjoyed this book and found a lot of new information even having taken an Alfred Hitchcock class in college. This book is a very in depth and person account of Hitch, one that successfully looks at him both critically and emotionally. Spoto does a wonderful job of covering all aspects of Hitch, giving an entertaining glance at his personal and professional lives with great balance to each. I think all Hitch fans will love this fun and informative book. The narrator was equally wonderful and pleasant to listen to.
I would definitely recommend this title. After watching an entire week of documentaries and coverage of the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's death, I still found this book very interesting, and it succeeded in giving me even more information I didn't know. This was a great follow-up to Killing Lincoln, and O'Reilly is wonderful at telling a story without pushing agendas or bias. He has a gift for producing fact-based writing while still making it interesting.
There are so many books about the Holocaust, but this one holds its own and stands out among the rest. Corrie's storytelling-like writing style and her inspiring recount of her involvement with hiding Jews during WWII makes this one hard to stop listening to.
The narration is wonderful and contributes well to the story.
Absolutely. McCullough has a true knack for telling history like a story that doesn't even sound possible and leaves you unable to "put it down"
I liked how McCullough painted the picture of the town and the people who lived there. He did a wonderful job of telling the stories of those who lived through this.
I have not, but I enjoyed it
Yes. It ended much sooner than I wanted it to.
I really wanted to like this book as I love Civil War history. I found the story line to be moving from one insignificant area to another. After an hour or two I had yet to hear much about Jones. This book seems to be less about Jones and more about a large family who lived there.
I did like the narrator's voice. It was pleasant to listen to.
