As many declared that this story is not as brilliant as Child 44, but it is a very good one.
75% of the novel will keep you in the edge with heart beating events, but at the end of the book the pace become slower and it become more like an insight about history (so if you like reading history this is an extra bonus for you).
The narrator is very good. No major complaints, I just couldn't get in the mood with him 100%, but I blame myself here, it seems I am not so fond of the Russian accent. Listen to the sample.
I highly recommend this book and I enjoyed it... don't waste it.
This was my first book about Abraham Lincoln and about Vampires.
I was longing to read about Lincoln, however vampires are not my hype. The writer managed to include the fiction with reality to create a whole piece with no visible holes.
The story is engaging, the known tragedies in Lincoln life and how the writers used them gives a dark twist to the atmosphere.
If like vampire stories get this book, if you are looking for a historian book about Lincoln but afraid to be bored by historian details then get this both.
Audio performance is great.
I would listen to it again to deepen the concepts I took.
David Drummond brings an excellent performance, and keeps you interested in the subject. I believe reading this book myself would take longer time and I might get bored.David reading was very convincing that many times I my mind wander to think that the writer is the one reading it.
Knowing absolutely that great achievements is in our hands.It is also shocking to know the great responsibility that we parents had toward the future of our children.
Some ideas are repetitive... you get the whole point of the book before the middle of it, and many of the surprises stop there. Yet is nice listening to different stories of talented people and the hopes it trigger. The narrator keeps a lovely company and succeed to make you listen to the very end.
