I am a big fan of history books including long reads (Truman is one of my favorites at over 50 hours), but I was very disappointed at how this book dragged along. I must admit that I didn't even download the second part of this book and probably never will.
A fantastic story and a great listen. I can't wait for the next one from Larson!!
This book is definitely worth the "read". It is well written and narrated with just the right balance of humor and suspense. I am currently listening to another of Rosenfelt's books (Bury the Lead) and just love his writing style.
I listened to this book for the last couple of months and will sorely miss it. I was skeptical that it would hold my interest for 50+ hrs. and was presently amazed. This is a fabulous view of important yet sometimes overlooked US history that shouldn't be missed by anybody interested in this genre.
