    McCullough's John Adams has the sweep and vitality of a great novel. This is history on a grand scale, an audiobook about politics, war, and social issues, but also about human nature, love, religious faith, virtue, ambition, friendship, and betrayal, and the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas. Above all, it is an enthralling, often surprising story of one of the most important and fascinating Americans who ever lived.

    Davis says: "An outstanding biography"
    "Boring, boring, boring"
    Overall

    Usually I'm sad when a book ends but I was relieved when this one ended, as it was quite a slog to get thru it. There are interesting parts and tidbits but a lot of it is boring. I almost gave up during the first couple of hours but then it improved a little bit so I kept going. It was more my curiosity about John Adams and the history of the time that kept me going rather than the quality of the book. The information is good but there's just something about the writing that makes it boring, which is a pity.
