    On May 18, 1860, William H. Seward, Salmon P. Chase, Edward Bates, and Abraham Lincoln waited in their hometowns for the results from the Republican National Convention in Chicago. When Lincoln emerged as the victor, his rivals were dismayed and angry. Throughout the turbulent 1850s, each had energetically sought the presidency as the conflict over slavery was leading inexorably to secession and civil war.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Team of Rivals?

    So detailed that I lost interest. Kept coming back to try again, but each time only got interesting info every 30 minutes.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Only got to Volume 2 and couldn't hang on any longer.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Anyone speaking for tens of hours will become distracting.


    What character would you cut from Team of Rivals?

    All the peripherals.


    Any additional comments?

    Make a one volume version for those of us who are less historically fervent.
