The story of Charles Lindbergh is fascinating. This book is full of all the ups and downs of his exceptional career. It is a little too full of facts though. The narrator makes his way through all of this with an uncanny feel for the whole story. After reading one of the other reviews I thought I should just read the book. However, none of the narration flaws described in that review seemed accurate to me. The narrator actually kept me interested when the author had overburdened his book with details. Sometimes it was as if I was listening to some of the Bible on cassette. The text itself gets bogged down with name after name and it gets confusing. The narrator did a fine job of navigating through the more detailed material and then he would come alive as an exciting scene would unfold. If your looking for a book with a comprehensive perspective on Charles Lindbergh, then this is the book for you.
It hasn't increased my interest very much because this book is loaded facts about Charles Lindbergh. I don't know where I'd go to dig deeper.
The author does present the information well. The more interesting events are tied together with historical facts that give context to the important scenes.
Nothing. It's not the narrator, but the type of material that he's reading.
Overall this is a good book. The narrator has a deep rolling voice that's perfect for audio books. The historical subject of this book makes it hard to pay attention when nothing exciting is going on. And it's a long book.
