I've been a member since 10/07 and have heard (read) over 30 books since then. The overwhelming majority have been of the non-fiction, historical type. That being said, I just finished a few days with this one and, for the 1st time, went directly to my computer to write this review. This is an absolutely amazing book. It is well-written (after all, the author went to Harvard, not me), well-narrated, and this is an exceptional story. I can't recommend this one highly enough.....it is the best one I've experienced. Get it!
Just OK. I found this to be a rather typical, rather ordinary, who dun it.
Everyone with a brain should get this book. I couldn't stop listening to it. It was packed tightly with information and read very well. A must listen to fully appeciate their insanity and what we, as a country and a people, are really dealing with. I came away with a new understanding (and I am already well-informed) of truly how much money and how out of their minds the Right really is.......that they're nuts and dangerous!
As the title states, to hear this book is like you were there. A lover of history will surely like this.....an amazing event described wonderfully and narrated very well.
This one I think is good but I'd like to really hear it. The sound is quality is poor. I am a quarter way through it, and may not finish. Don't waste your money. It's a shame they apparently can't improve the sound.
Full disclosure: I am a Progressive and I supported Obama in the presidential campaign and I continue to support him. That being said, this book was wonderful to listen to, a fantastic book that was written very well and read like a good novel! It held my interest right through from beginning to end, and I am well-informed to begin with. The narratation was outstanding. Overall, I had a very positive experience with it!
I just finished today this audiobook and must say that I enjoyed it a great deal. But, as the title reflects, there is one important caveat: to like it you must care about the subject matter. I certainly cared a lot about it as I was a young man in the 60's and thus maintain a vague memory of most of the events. This book provides a well-done filling in of the details. It held my interest and I was sorry that it ended.
However, I can almost hear someone say: "who cares"? The author delves into almost excruciating detail, so be prepared for that. The narrator is good. In summary, if you are a student of the 1960's get this and listen to it. You won't be sorry. Just be careful.
Boring. What's the point?
