I can't wait to get back in the car to listen to the next chapter. A new plot twist just at the right moment . . . over and over again.
If you love Bujold's Vorkosigan universe, this book brings together the events and the people of a dozen prior books with new viewpoints and revelations.
The role of Ivan Vorpatril had been under-developed before this book. You will like the trouble Ivan can get himself into . . . . and out of.
Just when all seems lost, Ivan finds a novel use for breakfast cereal.
Bill O'Reilly's voice adds a dimension of hero worship to a text that gives irony and texture to the deep emotions that ran through Washington in 1865. I find it easy to relate to the history when Bill O'Reilly shows his take on the conspirators, the southern sympathizers, and the generals on both sides. I'll bet that Martin Dugard did great research, but I think Bill O'Reilly's narration adds greatly to the storytelling.
Abe Lincoln is, of course, the hero of any story of his hopes and dreams for welcoming the South back in to the union without acrimony.
This is the first Bill O'Reilly book I have listened to.
I found myself anxious to get back into the car so that I could hear the next snippet of the book on my commute to and from work.
