    On a busy Washington morning, the stately calm of the White House is shattered in a deadly terrorist attack on the executive mansion. The president is evacuated to an underground bunker, but not before nearly one hundred hostages are taken. Mitch Rapp, the CIA’s top counterterrorism operative, is sent in to take control of the crisis and determines that the president is not as safe as Washington’s power elite had thought....

    Michael says: "Great Story-Bad Narration"
    "Good book, terrible narrator"
    Overall

    I enjoy this series of books, the characters, and the story twists, but Nick Sullivan is by far the worst dramatic narrator I've heard. He's developed terrible ( and superficially stereotyped ) voices, without much understanding of the storyline, and no acting ability. It's very tough to listen through. He may be good with non-fiction, non-dramatic narration, but not here. I'm not looking forward to the next book.

    Almost hypnotic in its narrative drive, The March stunningly renders the countless lives swept up in the violence of a country at war with itself. The great march in E.L. Doctorow's hands becomes something more, a floating world, a nomadic consciousness, and an unforgettable reading experience with awesome relevance to our own times.

    Overall

    Exceptionally well written; Doctorow has mastered the English language and tells a fascinating, fact-based tale which kept me engrossed. The narrator is the best I've heard in an audiobook and he truly brings the characters to life.
