I would not recommend this book unless the listener had a broad overview of the Watergate Saga. Without a broad overview, the listener is likely to be overwhelmed by the details. I lived through the sorry saga and thus had a framework for placing the details in perspective.
I believe that John Dean has performed a valuable service by transcribing the tapes. I hope that his efforts are rewarded by interested readers. I first learned of the book through an NPR interview of the author.
i remember this incident when it happened. It certainly gave a "black-eye" to Queens. The book is well researched but poorly organized. There is too much repetition of facts. Better organization and presentation of those facts would have been appreciated.
This book is a classic. One of the great American novels. It resonates each time I explore it. Have lost track of the number or reads. This is my first listen and I wasn't disappointed. One of the few books that I will likely have multiple listens. Nuff said!!!!
I enjoyed the book, but believe that I might have been able to follow it better in written rather than audio format. I found the book to be well reasoned and well researched. I benefitted from having some understanding of Constitutional Law. Perhaps I am prejudiced since I usually agreed with Judge Stevens when he was on the bench.
I have enjoyed Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta Series for a number of years. Cornwell's is a good story teller. I didn't find the narrator as bad as some reviewers. I thought that she did an excellent job with Morino.
Although I found this to be a good part of the Scarpetto series, I was disappointed that there would have been no way for the reader to solve the mystery before the end. The clues didn't add up to anyone we had been introduced to.
One final thought, despite the fact Scarpetta is billed as a Medical Examiner, I find her to be more of a detective than would be true of most Medical Examiners.
I started this book twice and fell asleep both times. Too boring for my tastes.
During the first half of the story, I was unsure where it was headed. The ending did a good job of clarifying everything. The story is a bit fanciful, but still interesting. This is my first book by this author.. Plan to try one more.
This book isn't for everyone, but is well worth the effort for those who find the challenges of Theoretical Physics interesting. The book provides a good summary of the topic, with an avenue for the hope of future inquiry. This is my second book by this author and I find his presentations clearly explained.
I found this book to be very entertaining. I usually don't care for books where the story is told through more than one person, but I found that it worked well in this case. I especially liked the way the story unfolded. I would try another of Heather's books. Well done.
A good mixture of mystery and magic. Just what Dean Koontz is noted for. Not as good as Mr Murder, but an interesting listen.
I wasn't expecting much from this book. I had purchased it as a daily special. I found the book very moving. Most of it is the story of Izzy, a Hospice dog and the comfort such a dog can bestow upon the terminally ill.
The author, Jon Katz has a unique gift for telling the story and communicating the emotional bond between humans and animals.
