The performance of this story is first rate, the story however I think tries too hard to include every notable figure of the era and in doing so loses something in pacing and structure.
Still a story worth listening too, just not first rate.
Very entertaining and well delivered. The history is good and delivered in such an easy going lighthearted style that it's sometimes hard to forget that your learning something.
I enjoyed this one as much as I enjoyed his Lincoln book, this one was a little longer, but still light fare. I listen to a lot of historical audio-books and these last two O'Reilly books are a nice change of pace, not as in depth as most books on the subject but he hits all the salient points and does so in a nice well paced manner.
This audiobook is worth a listen, but has it'e flaws.
The story is well written, fast paced, and quite entertaining.
They needed to hire a professional reader, Bill O'Reilly may be OK for TV but he is not very skilled as a narrator.
Yes, and due to it's rather short duration this can be easily achieved.
Audiobooks of this duration should be only 1/2 a credit at most, I disliked spending a full credit for this when I could get books 4 to 5 times it's size for the same price.
