    This monumental book tells the enthralling story of one of the greatest accomplishments in our nation's history, the building of what was then the longest suspension bridge in the world. The Brooklyn Bridge rose out of the expansive era following the Civil War, when Americans believed all things were possible.

    Kathy says: "The Great Bridge"
    "Interesting and lifting."

    Story
    Would you listen to The Great Bridge again? Why?

    Yes - I'll probably listen to it again even after already listening.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very well characterized the challenges in their day.


    What about Nelson Runger’s performance did you like?

    I appreciate Nelson Runger, but, I'm very tired of him. I've listened to him read at least 50 books.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes. The battle Roebling had with the worthless politicians who were willing to scrap thehim, the greatest asset of the bridge. Politicians always short-shrift the doers in the world - it's still true today!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book. I've heard almost every book I think in this genre - historical engineering projects, and this is one of the best. Highest recommendation.
