    Traditionally, Robert F. Kennedy has been viewed as either the "Good Bobby", who saw wrong and tried to right it, or the "Bad Bobby" of countless conspiracy theories. Evan Thomas' achievement is to realize RFK as a human being, to bring to life an extraordinarily complex man who was at once kind and cruel, devious and honest, fearful and brave. The portrait that emerges is unvarnished but sympathetic, packed with new details about Kennedy's early life and his behind-the-scenes machinations.

    Donald says: "Excellent"
    "Great Book Ruined"
    Overall

    I have to agree with the review by Andrew on 3/7/07. I love this biography of one of the most interesting and complex Americans who came from great wealth but became a champion of those who were denied basic human dignity. RFK is the last presidential candidate who truly inspired me and I was looking forward to listening to this biography during a long plane trip. However, the narrator of this wonderful book has ruined it by attempting to mimic voices and accents when quoting various individuals, including using a falsetto for female speakers. And the Boston accent was disasterous. I found the atttempts to mimic extremely distracting. Content deserves 5 stars but the narration warrants only 2 stars.
