    "This is the audio to the TV show..."

    The narrator compares Lizzie Borden to O.J. Simpson. True enough. Both were guilty and got influential lawyers to get them off. But both paid, in a way, in the end. Intriguing story of a girl who whacked her parents.

    "Mostly good"

    I thought the first 45 minutes of this book was really good but after that the book definitely "died" down a bit.

    "Lizzie Borden"
    What did you like best about Biography? What did you like least?

    I found it all a bit iffy, nothing new learned. To be fair though, the biographer is obviously limited by the facts available but it made for a rather boring story in the end. I gained no new insight into the story at all.


    What could A&E Television Networks have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    More research


    Was Biography worth the listening time?

    It was okay, it didn't cost much so I probably got what I paid for.

    "Excellent audio production"

    This book is not the author's best biography. Most information about Grace Kelly has been around for years, and this book adds nothing new. However, the production is outstanding with classical music provided during the transitions.
