This book was far more honest and realistic then I anticipated. The truth and clarity is outstanding. I have learned many fascinating details not to mention a great deal of guidance which I believe can be extracted from this book. If there were ever a time to read a book on Jefferson, it would be in these modern times. It was fascinating to learn what went on inside this mans head. I feel small knowing his immense mental power and craft. I cannot see such a mind fashioned as he was, and as were so many of his contemporaries coming to pass in these ages. Are we ever to know another great mind such as Jefferson again? Listen to this book I never once shut it off for any other reason then I had to. I promise, it is absolutely engulfing and frankly, one of the most interesting books I've bought in a long time.
Edward Hermann was the perfect narrator. It truly is a top of the line book and Edward Hermann makes it incredibly pleasant to listen to for hours at a time.
Jefferson no doubt
This is one of the best Narrators of our time. No doubt on historical topics as he is the man for the History Channel.
Thomas Jefferson, the man America needed then and now.
A democratic Republic is not a spectators sport, it requires participation all the time.
Excellent stray and outstanding performance by Henry Strozier. Strozier really shines, he does amazing Scottish And German characters. While he does these characters he jumps in and out of multiple American characters which I realized was very difficult but his outstanding artistry makes it seem easy. The book was superb and the narration was exactly what was needed to bring it to life. The protagonist has many things to sort out while the plot builds and the details and mystery that unfold builds as the book goes on. Bass Tillman gives the listener insight into his mind, while unraveling the mystery and developing a terrific ending
The performance was exactly as expected, outstanding. Lewis was superb and did relate the joy, sadness, anger and sorrow with only what a brilliant narrator could do. He is actually an excellent actor as well as a writer. The story was well done and the details were superb, very well done so that as to paint exacting pictures. The characters in the story fit perfectly as do the time line and the details.
Once again, Lewis hits it out of the ball park with a great story and some good emotion woven in and out of the story. Lewis takes you far up into the Indian country and shares some real historic scenarios that one could expect at that time. The performance Lewis gives is as expected, excellent and well read with plenty of character feel in his voice. Great book in the trail series and looking forward to more.
Highly recommend if you like great cowboy stories. Lewis writes with excellent detail and delivers his works himself as a seasoned actor. When a good writer has the talent to deliver his works in a performance, that usually works out really well as he knows all the details of the characters and delivers an excellent performance. Not many authors are good readers but Lewis actually is outstanding at both.
The story gives the listener a picture of the westward life and the lexicon used is authentic with great attention to details that paint a really great picture throught the the book.
Just what I expected. Another great piece of work from David Lewis. Not only does he tie the story together from Deer Run but he adds some excellent emotion to the list of great work. His performance for the list of characters was really great.
Great story. Refreshing to go back to a simpler time where people are real and words were different yet full of meaning. Yarn for yours or see'd for seen etc, the Missouri draw and folksy ways about the characters brings a real feeling of Americana to the story. There is no confusing tough from good and bad. David uses an amazing assortment of voice and dictate to create his characters personalities. Great story, moments of genuine emotion. Highly recommend
Outstanding descriptions throughout the book. Simon Vance was brilliant. Highly recommend if you like adventure from the past on the seas
Shew! I made it through. Good God I thought I would collapse from listening to these guys telling their own stories via the documented notes and diaries Nomi used. She does a thorough job but it took a while to make it through 100 years of obscene banksterism and collusion between the government and banks. If you don't know this stuff then you need to hear this. If you're like me and know the topic well it's a bit trying to hear but still has good parts.
In the end, prepare yourself for a major collapse of the economic system as we know it. Thank you to big to fail.
Excellent Science to back his works.
The diversity of the effects wheat has on our bodies. His works are superbly spelled out so you completely understand. He uses some good humor as well. Not at all dry, great book. Loved it.
He is a great reader. He has good all around reader qualities. He does hard to digest material well. Legal, political and this book which is medical. All well delivered without feeling like you're watching paint dry.
I gave it space, I also re listened to some chapters as there are points that are technical but not complicated.
After this book. I eat NOTHING wheat at all. Nor have the rest of our family. All seeing improvements. Great recipes in the download. That alone is worth the book.
The writer paints the picture in exquisite detail. You will see all of it and follow the narrators caricature wonderfully
All were great!
Yes, he is superb. I picked the book in great part due to his narration.
I was wanting to listen to the whole book marathon but made it a point to divide it up as necessary. Great listen, you will not want to stop if you like mental adventure. The science was superb.
Great classic writer, great narrator, excellent material. Not dated in the least. FAR FAR better then the modern day movies. No wonder they keep trying to create this story in film. Just not as good as the read (Listen)
