Jane Ellen's reading is painful. Her reading style is too fast, singsong-like and hard to follow. Section titles blur into text and quotes are undistinguished from normal text. But the writing of the book itself also seems weak. This is my first Grant biography but I have read many other civil war books that were better organized, had better narratives and did not rely on the thesaurus style of adjective use. Clearly Waugh wants to defend Grant, but I found her approach raised more questions then she answered and often left me doubting the credibility of her points. Search out a better writer if you want to learn about Grants life.
