Yes, they are typically terrific
I could not get past the first 30 minutes. I tried and tried to get into it but the American narrator with no sense of an Irish accent and sense of humor was awful. Bring back Adam Moore!
just awful - he is in no way appropriate for the part
First audiobook for which I have ever asked to get my money back
After enjoying more than 100 books from Audible i finally came across a real lemon. The main character (Nate MacCormack) is so far over the top with his moronic cliches and infantile melodrama that the book was just plain annoying. Poor Scott Brick, a normally great reader, for being caught up in this mess. 2 credits too!
Plodding and insufferably pompous. I will probably try again some day to get through it but for now, it is way too tedious to contemplate.
As an adult i have not been a student of this period of history. Thus the information about President Lincoln's cabinet was new and fascinating. The prose was excellent, the character development was perhaps overly concise [see below], and the emotions the story evoked profound and at the end, devastating. My only disappointment was that it an abridged book, i would have bought the print edition had i realized this.
The venom spews forth nonstop. If it wasn't so chilling, given the author's continuing influence in our government, it would be laughable. Of particular note is the author's hostility towards Saudia Arabia and those Americans that consort with its leadership - Never once did the authors mention the intimate, long term and continuing relationship of the Bush clan with these financiers of terror and repression.
