Good listen. Good history. No "thrills." Stuff that will keep a crusty old curmudgeon tuned in.
Lindbergh for stiffing his mother-in-law who tried to stiff him.
Lynn Olsen's CITIZENS OF LONDON is a historical masterpiece.
FDR/Lindbergh is good but not THAT good.
The history of that era, how the USA came close to not happening, the heavy burden of GW, HK, et al. The author is perfect in reading his book. Never has a book cost so little.
Another gem is Candice Millard's DESTINY OF THE REPUBLIC.
It's refreshing to read about what the US once was, and depressing to see what we've become.
Rarely is fiction in the same ballpark with non-fiction about the early days of the USA.

If ever there was a book worth the money.....
I've yet to meet him or her. Arafat might enjoy it as he whiles away time in Paradise. .
Can't think of anything.
Not that I can tell.
How do such books find a publisher?
Near the top.
No, but none are.
The authors know their stuff. Nary a thrill. Human nature far worse than we'd thought.
Maybe, but probably not. It was disappointing.
Not as good
Not for me. Hard to keep attentive.
Yes, but not until I do his other books.
No edge of seat but interesting all the way.
Scott's the best.
Another book ruined by the movie
I'd about given up on getting a good listen. Koryta doesn't write "thrillers." Lots of people apparently need thrills. Not me. I enjoy intelligently written, plausible stories.
A book less boring, implausible, ridiculous
Scott Brick doing it, but even he couldn't pull this one out.
I'm not an intellectual, so this sort of (expletive deleted) must be what intellectuals enjoy.
Waste of a credit
It easily and interestingly relates to real life in the military. Not a "thrill" to be found.
"Thrillers" are boring and stupidly implausible.
He was ok.
Cut all music. It detracts and is unneeded.
I struggle thru it because I paid for it and because I've enjoyed the author's previous works. This one way to long.. And it was easy to guess that Beth would be the heroine that would save Cory. Never been so glad to finish a book.
FDR died when I was 14. His biography FDR is interesting and not "thrilling." Not everybody wants to be 'thrilled." Bios of famous people who have affected our lives in one way or another is thrill enough for this crusty old curmudgeon.
Brilliant man. Flawed man. He knew he was dying and didn't bother to brief Harry
Truman about the war or about the Manhattan Project. If that's not dereliction of duty, pray tell what would be.
For those who enjoy play-by-play descriptions of before and after babies are aborted, this book is for you.
A PRAYER FOR OWEN MEANY it ain't. But OB/GYN residents are sure to enjoy hearing about the how and why of abortions -- over and over again.
Yogi Berra might say: "It ain't over and it don't seem like it ever will be." .
