This is in the top ten books I have listened to. Skillfully written, Hampton Sides uses some turns of phrase that just make you smile. Even though you know what is going to happen, the murder of Dr. King broke my heart all over again. A must for anyone who remembers that year of assassinations.
I have read all of Cruz Smith's other books and I have been riveted by them. I just couldn't get into this one. I'm not sure if it was the story or the abridgment, but it was very hard to follow. The characters were predictable and two dimensional. I didn't care about any of them. I ended up skipping to the last chapter just to get it over with.
C. S. Lewis is very engaging as he narrates this collection of thoughts on Christianity. He is never condescending or judgemental. an excellent book if you want to hear a clear explanation of some of Christianity's most basic beliefs.
