    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    If you could sum up Killing Lincoln in three words, what would they be?

    There is no denying the compelling history relayed in Killing Lincoln. I wish I had read the book rather than listened to it as recorded by Mr. O'Reilly. His voice and delivery were a constant detraction and reminder that he is television personality. He mispronounced so many words that I started a list. My guess is that someone along the way must have suggested to Mr. O'Reilly that he might want to turn the narration over to an actor but Mr. O'Reilly's ego would never permit that.

    I recently listened to The Cat's Table on Audible. It was read by the author and it is a beautiful example of the author's voice enhancing the story. Angela's Ashes is another. O'Reilly take note.


    What other book might you compare Killing Lincoln to and why?

    Devil in the White City
    In the Garden of the Beasts


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bill O'Reilly?

    Just about any actor, male or female, would have done a better job.

    It’s amateur hour at the White House. So says New York Times best-selling author Edward Klein in his political exposé The Amateur. Tapping into the public’s growing sentiment that President Obama is in over his head, The Amateur argues that Obama’s toxic combination of incompetence and arrogance has run our nation and his presidency off the rails.

    Michael says: "Obama Fans Aren't Going to Like This Book!"
    "Fascinating read!"

    Where does The Amateur rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Klein's book is one I hope everyone will get a chance to read before the election in November. His sources are people in the news who can be trusted to be truthful.
