I would have liked a little more about his personal life even though I realize they wanted us to know about the political part of his life.
The interesting part was his move when becoming President. The least interesting was some of the information about the wars.
The performance of the reader kept your attention
This was a quick fix to a long story.
The text was a wonderful little explanation of the life of Lincoln. The author does not skip on the smaller points of scholarship that he has gained from his extensive experience in history. I could listen to this book a couple of times.
easy to understand but not dumbed down. great narrator
1776 by Mc Cullough but more concise
