"Lincoln has come close to laying bare the meaning of human life for his time and the ages." (David D. Anderson, Lincoln scholar)
This is a wonderful teaching device! I teach 6th grade and to be able to have my students listen to some of Lincoln's speeches out loud is extremely useful... Much of Lincolns writing is difficult for them to read. The language to wonderful but above thier heads. Having them listen helps immensely!
It is a little difficult to listen to because it is soo long and has no index so I have to listen to every track of the disk to find what I am looking for.
I was disappointed in this audiobook. I wanted to gain some sort of insight of Lincoln but found myself beaten into daydreaming by the on and on droning. Not to mention the slow speaking and monotone voice that seemed to say nothing. I found myself asking where the last 30 minutes went and what did I hear? I am sorry I wasted my credit on this one...
