    At once an incredible adventure narrative and a penetrating biographical portrait, The River of Doubt is the true story of Theodore Roosevelt's harrowing exploration of one of the most dangerous rivers on earth.

    Usually I do not write reviews, but in this case I felt an obligation to tell all who would like a suspense filled biography from beginning to end, that this is it. Betond the suspense there are bits and pieces of human interaction that Candice Millard picks up. This was the best book that I have ever heard or read and one that I didn't want it to end. Beyond the drama of the event (exploration of an Amazon tributary) the writing style and narration was key to keeping my interest. I cannot wait for the next Millard book.

  • Andrew Jackson: His Life and Times

    Story
    (2)

    The most famous American of his time, Andrew Jackson is a seminal figure in American history. The first "common man" to rise to the presidency, Jackson embodied the spirit and the vision of the emerging American nation; the term "Jacksonian democracy" is embedded in our national lexicon. With the sweep, passion, and attention to detail that made The First American a Pulitzer Prize finalist, historian H.W. Brands shapes a historical narrative that's as fast-paced and compelling as the best fiction.

    The narrator ruined the read because he raced through the book, slurring his words. Almost like he couldn't wait to get through it. The content was excellent, but it was hard to concentrate because of the narrator.

    Ron Chernow, whom the New York Times called "as elegant an architect of monumental histories as we've seen in decades", now brings to startling life the man who was arguably the most important figure in American history, who never attained the presidency, but who had a far more lasting impact than many who did.

    Robert says: "Captivating & Fluid Bio Unique American immigrant"

    The best. Better than the McCullough books. Great narrator.
