Lifeless telling of one of the great writers in history.
No. But avoid anything by Claire Tomlinson
Nothing animated, but then the book wasn't
The actor delivers the most effected and effete reading I have ever heard. He pronounces the word "cop" as if he's doing an imitation of how Katherine Hepburn would pronounce it. He sounds smug and supercilious. Like somebody who never met one in real life. Connelly is a brilliant writer and I was looking forward to this. The overall effect is so discordant I couldn't listen and asked for my money back.
Author manages to smother the remarkable story of the rivalry between Lincoln and McClellan under obsessive and colorless re-telling of every single battlefield move in two years of war.
I am asking for refund.
