    McCullough's John Adams has the sweep and vitality of a great novel. This is history on a grand scale, an audiobook about politics, war, and social issues, but also about human nature, love, religious faith, virtue, ambition, friendship, and betrayal, and the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas. Above all, it is an enthralling, often surprising story of one of the most important and fascinating Americans who ever lived.

    Davis says: "An outstanding biography"
    "Dull and Duller"
    Overall

    I am a big fan of historical fiction and even like reading true fiction if well written and read. I thought this book would be a natural choice for me so I picked it up. I was unable to get all the way thru the first part no matter how hard I tried. It was dull, drab and drawn out. Maybe if I had to write a report for school it may be worthwhile to listen to it. But as pure enjoyment it is a chore.
