    With the sweep and vitality of a great novel, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David McCullough presents the enthralling story of John Adams. 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. Read by History Channel host Edward Herrmann!

    Overall

    The nearly universal praise for David McCullough's book is very well deserved. Adams was an amazing gentleman and we owe so much to him for his service to our country. Listening to this excellently narrated (abridged) audiobook made me long to know more about our 2nd president and his remarkable wife and family. So much so that I went out and bought the book to read it unabridged. I especially enjoyed the extensive quotes from personal correspondence in the story line. It gave wonderful insight to who these people really were and what they thought about our country, each other and life. If you haven't gotten around to hearing this one yet, do not hesitate to hear it!

    In 1970, one of Mississippi's more colorful weekly newspapers, The Ford County Times, went bankrupt. To the surprise and dismay of many, ownership was assumed by a 23 year-old college dropout, named Willie Traynor. The future of the paper looked grim until a young mother was brutally raped and murdered by a member of the notorious Padgitt family. Willie Traynor reported all the gruesome details, and his newspaper began to prosper.

    Danielle says: "Grisham's Finest"
    "One of the best audiobooks I've ever heard."
    Overall

    I highly recommend this audio book for the story and the skill of the reader! I have read most Grisham books and this is my first time hearing one as an audio book. Michael Beck is the perfect reader - I think he must be from Mississippi. It's as if he's telling his own story. I grew up in Mississippi and really enjoyed the story - very colorful descriptions of the area and people - very well done! This story has helped me come to terms with the place where I grew up realizing that even for all its flaws, Mississippi is a very interesting place with very colorful characters!

    Jesus said, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." That's the offer of Christianity, from God himself.

    Overall

    Hearing this via Audible is my second time through the book. The narrator starts out a little monotone but really warms up to the subject very quickly. I have really enjoyed hearing this during my commute and will look forward to listening again and again. One interesting thing about the recording... they left in two flubs early in the program. The reader so flawlessly moves into the second take, the editors didn't notice and take it out!
