I was inspired to listen to this book because I recently finished a fictional book in which the Cuban Missile Crisis played a key role. I hoped to gain some insight into the news of the day, the feel of the crisis, and how the public reacted. I guess this was the wrong book for me, because it's a moment-to-moment reaccount of recorded conversations in the Oval Office. Interesting for a while, but hours of this is hard to listen to.
The narration was clear but rather cold and monotonous. Hour after hour he speaks in the same tone.
I also figured this would be fairly intriguing and it was just dry and dull. A few minor dust-ups in the diaglogue, no information at all about the public reaction to the crisis. I suppose that for JFK and other historical scholars it might be interesting, but just barely.
Been looking forward to this for months and I was not disappointed. So glad to have this book. Suspenseful, satisfying, scary, and clever.
I may actually feel it necessary to write an ending for this book.
