    (352)

    Ron Chernow, whom the New York Times called "as elegant an architect of monumental histories as we've seen in decades", now brings to startling life the man who was arguably the most important figure in American history, who never attained the presidency, but who had a far more lasting impact than many who did.

    Robert says: "Captivating & Fluid Bio Unique American immigrant"
    "So enjoyable"
    Overall

    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.

  • O is for Outlaw: A Kinsey Millhone Mystery

    Through 14 books, listeners have been fed short rations when it comes to Kinsey Millhone's past. This time, Grafton feeds you an entire feast, including the juice about Kinsey's first husband!

    Lisa says: "Did not like the narrator"
    "Some Kinsey history"
    Overall

    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.
