    The most eagerly awaited presidential biography in years, Theodore Rex tells the story of President Theodore Roosevelt in real time, reflecting the world as "TR" saw it. Full of cinematic detail, Theodore Rex moves with the exhilarating pace of a novel, yet it rides on a granite base of scholarship.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Edmund Morris and/or Jonathan Marosz?

    I would certainly buy another book from Morris, however I will avoid Marosz as a narrator. He has a horrible habit of drawing out random words much to long, speaks slowly and treats the text as if he is singing a song. Unfortunately, he seems to enjoy the sound of his voice more than the text he has been asked to read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It helps me to better understand a period of American history that has been glossed over in all of my history classes, where we think of civil war, maybe a bit of the war of 1812, barely mention the Spanish American war, and then skip to WWI. This is very unfortunate since much of our current "Americanism" was originally developed during this period, as Morris shows.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jonathan Marosz’s performances?

    No, he must be the worst narrator I have heard on audible.
