As a new listener to audio books-I thorougly enjoyed listening to 1776.David McCullough is a wonderful storyteller and writer.Felt like I was there amidst the struggles,battles and the eventual amazing victory of winning Americas' Independence from England. I had not realized how much the odds were against us with Englands mighty military strength. I have gained a new respect for Washington and the others who went before us to fight for and win our freedom against great odds-a lesson for today.
Hard to stop listening when other duties arose-such as work! A must listen!
Very encouraging for the Christian sojourner -it was not too
long and plan to listen to it often and perhaps even get the printed version..
I loved this book. I listened to it while commuting and during my walking breaks-always hated to have to wait until the next time. Mr O'Reilly narrates his book himself which makes it even better. I also grew up Catholic so could relate to Mr. O's early years.He has some really funny stories as well about his growing up years.Also there is a lot of good advise for the young and aspiring individual in whatever endeavor they are pursuing.
A truly delightful book-you won't regret purchasing this and it wasn't so long that it took an extended time to get through it. Loved it!!
