This was an excellent audiobook. I learned many new details about Jackson's life, which I never knew before. The story was riveting and I also really enjoyed learning much more about Jackson's life as a young man, and about his marriages and family. This was a completely new side to him from my perspective. I also thought that the narrator did a very nice job with the reading. I highly recommend this book if you are interested in biographies, military history or the American Civil War.
This is a terrific book. The level of detail about Lee is amazing. It is not a dry historical read, but the narrative actually comes alive and we learn much about Lee the man. It's a must read for Civil War buffs. I especially enjoyed the part of the book focusing on Appomattox. The author wrote it in a way that the reader feels that she is in the room watching as the events unfold. Great narration as well. Highly recommend it!
This was a great audiobook. I was riveted by the story of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and by the military's hunt for the band of assasins. John Wilkes Booth was an unbelieveable narcissist, and it is amazing to listen to the description of this unstable man, and how he brought down such a great president. The author provides lots of historical details and does a great job of setting up the various scenes. The listener almost can see a picture of what the narrator is describing in the mind's eye. The story of Lincoln's assassin reads like fiction, and it is amazing that it is all true. Sometimes life is stranger than fiction.
This is a terrific audiobook. The narrator held my interest the entire time, and I liked his voice, which fit in very well with this tale of the West. I also enjoyed learning many details about the life of Kit Carson, and how men like Carson and Fremont lived on the frontier. The battle scenes were excellently described, and it was a very exciting listen. I would highly recommend it to those who like history books.
I thoroughly enjoyed this lecture on the life of Ben Franklin. The professor shared very interesting facts about Mr. Franklin and the narrative moved fast. The lecture also provided insights into the times that Ben Franklin lived in, and his contribution to our American revolution. I was saddened to hear that he refused to reconcile with his son after the conclusion of the Revolutionary War. I would have thought better of such a great man.
