I knew very little of Alexander Hamilton save for his untimely death. Perhaps my lack of knowledge was the main reason for choosing this title, along with other excellent reviews. I was rewarded with a splendid listen throughout the entire book. The narration is superb, with just the right inflections, which accurately conveys the author's fantastic phrasing and detailed knowledge. Chernow brought the early Republic to life for me and you won't go wrong if this biography captures your attention.
I've read most of Kinsey's stories (books) and this is my first audio recording. As for the recording, the reader does an excellent job of capturing the tone of the written word and Kinsey's sarcastic wit.
The story focuses on her search for the perpetrator who shot and seriously wounded her first husband. We are allowed a glimpse of Kinsey's life we've never been privy to and I think it offers a deeper vision of where she's come from, emotionally. Still, it's mostly about coming along for a ride with a fiesty loner...someone with whom I wouldn't mind sharing a drink. :)
The joy of her stories (for me) isn't anything remarkable in the plot, but feeling a part of her life. Her writing is escapism and light reading soley for the moment's enjoyment. Let others criticize...I like the series and I'll keep up until the alphabet runs dry.
