I've listened to all of Lee Child's Jack Reacher books and enjoyed them. This one was awful. There were a myriad of one-dimensional bad guys who were impossible to keep straight. We learned nothing new about Reacher. It was flat, uninteresting and not particularly suspenseful. The Jack Reacher books are worthwhile -- just don't start with this one.
This is how political biography should be done.
I loved learning about the personality and character of LBJ. Astonishingly ruthless.
If you love American history, you'll love this audiobook. I'm now into volume 3 of this series. When I started it, I didn't think it would hold my attention, but it grabbed me immediately and I was surprised to discover what a cliff hanger it was! There were times I just could not stop listening to see how things would turn out.
The sheer volume of research that went into this book is enough to give it five stars, but the riveting storytelling and perfect narration make it a rare gem.
