it has taken one month to listen to this book , but wow it is worth it.
the unabridge is well worth it as a monthly member, I try to get the books that are big/pricey.
the previous month I had selected the book on thomas jeffersons war on terrorism which lead me to this one.
This book is on Alexander Hamilton but also by nessity also gives an overview of the life in the west indies during the early1700's,slavery, american revolution, french revolution and early stages of party politics in the united states.
I love these characters, berty and jeeves are very interesting characters. My problem is that familiarity breeds contempt thing. the three that I have downloaded are all engaging and I do not regrett buying them, but they are all cut from the same basic outline.
I had complained that modern best selling authors all stick to the same formula, but so does Woodehouse. Oh well its still funny.
The naration is great
This book was really hard to listen to. The story is long and involves most of the 60's conspiracy theory's. JFK, MLK, Vietnam-cia-drug connection, it takes alot of concentration to remember what threads are going on at any one time. I wonder if it was easier to read than to listen to.
I liked this book alot
it shows how the united states evolved from fledgling nation to powerfull nation.
the evolution of jefferson is great, after years of arguing against centralized government, he takes that power and creates a powerfull navy, in order to protect the fledgling american commerce.
after this book I took the plunge and picked up the 5part Alexander Hamilton monster of a book.
I liked it alot
i had another version on audio tape from the 90's or so
I liked this verion
I liked it
It was a good dramatization of the book.
always have liked this book
I am writing this after I have also bought and heard the quandry and quintissential phases, so it flowed very well for me.
the cast is great. It has the bbc tv/radio arthur dent, and all.
i have read the books, and had the audiobooks on tape, but not these dramatizations.
this is a great cast and solid adaptation of the book so long and thanks for all the fish.
finally a voice to fenchurch.
some of the storylines are condensed but it flows great.
I now have the third, fourth, and fifth books dramatized
this dramatization is great it moves fast and has some minor changes to keep it under 3 hrs.
if you know the book mostly harmless, you know that it is the darkest of all the series. this adaptation is very enjoyable.
