    Story
    "Another Swanson Home Run!"
    Where does End of Days rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    James Swanson is one of the best writers of history ever. Audible only offers the abridged version of Manhunt, his book about the Lincoln conspiracy and aftermath. I enjoyed the abridged version so much that I purchased the book and read the entire work. Like Manhunt, End of Days was perfect and methodical in analyzing the Kennedy assassination. I learned so much about it, some even in the minutest details Swanson includes. Swanson is a gifted writer and teacher.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Swanson's methodical attention to details to make the recording a perfect work.


    What about Richard Thomas’s performance did you like?

    It was very good. Nothing in particular stood out, but his voice kept me interested in listening throughout the entire book.
