    "Disjointed and overly detailed"

    After listening to this book, I am starting to realize that Pulitzer Prize-winning histories are hit or miss. The subject of this book could be extremely interesting, but unfortunately Professor Bailyn's delivery is very disjointed and replete with details that keep the listener wondering how the travails of various settlers fit into the larger context of colonization.
