I do not think that I have ever gotten myself so wrapped up in a book like I did this one. I am only 24, and I knew almost nothing about this family (other that what I learned in history class) and decided to give this book a try. Within the first few minutes, I was hooked. The author did a wonderful job with the information and I had to keep reminding myself that this was (and still is) a REAL family in history because the story was so intriguing! I may not agree with some (Okay, being honest.. MOST) of the decisions that this family made, but I cannot deny that this was most definitely the most interesting family in US History. I am so impressed with this book that I almost do not want to read another one on the same subject because I do not think another author could do this family justice as well as J. Randy Taraborrelli! *GREAT BOOK!*
Not sure. The narrator turned me off so bad I feel like I don't want to subject anyone else to it...
He REALLY got on my nerves. He makes Jack (The American) sound like a robot!
The story was slow for the first third of the book, but came together quickly after that and kept my attention. I HATED the narrator though, he almost caused me to stop listening! His accent got on my nerves, and his attempt at an American accent ended up sounding like a robot. It's a great story though, as long as you can ignore the narrator...
Personally, all of the negative reviews are what made me want to write this... This was an excellent story & I hated that I could not listen to it all at once! It kept me wanting more & the narrator was spectacular! Please do not let the negative reviews turn you away... It is definitely worth a credit AND your time!!
