This is an extremely well written book about a fascinating historical figure. The reader is excellent and presents the material in a lively and interesting manner.
I would've thought it was impossible, but this reader makes Elmore Leonard dull. The great thing about Leonard's books is the dialog, but this guy makes everyone sound the same. He reads like an accountant going over a tax return. No, make that a tired and bored accountant.
This is a great book, a classic of American literature. I have read it before, but this audio version adds a whole new dimension. The reader captures the book perfectly, bringing extraordinary life and color to Warren's poetic words.
I like Elmore Leonard's books a lot. This one is very good, but not one of his best.
One of Elmore Leonard's best. Great story, great dialog, and perfect narration.
I like biographies but not this one. A very dull book about a very dull man, presented by a very dull reader. Warning: May cause drowsiness. Do not listen while driving an automobile or operating heavy equipment.
