Yes, I liked the way that Bryson was able to take a man that little is known about, and distill down the entire spectrum of theories into a reasonable view of the type of man Shakespeare could have been.
Bryson has a good sense of humor and I did find myself chuckling a few times.
Bill Bryson's narration, as always, is great. I found myself looking for an excuse to go for a drive just so I could listen to this book more. I always like it when the author narrates their own book, it feels more personal that way.
The narrator was very good which, of course, is key to the Audible experience.
It's similar in the way it is presented to Bill Bryson's At Home: A Short HIstory of Private Life. Both stories take an aspect of their subject and talk about how they came about.
It very well could have been if time had allowed for it, but it's the kind of book that works well while driving around in the car.
As always McCullough draws his audience in and you feel like you intimately know TR in his youth.
The ability to see the genesis of such a complex person like Roosevelt, who had done so much in his later years.
Stellar as always, Edward Herrmann has a voice for storytelling.
Yes, if time permitted it would have been a great story to have listened to in one sitting.
I really enjoyed this book, and will most likely get the unabridged version now.
