Bill O'Reilly's books always intrigue me. Not only his story telling ability but the depth of his research amazes me. Lincoln and the Civil War have always interested me. Excellent read.
I'm not a history buff, but I still really enjoyed listening to the book. After all, it's rather incumbent that every American know about Lincoln's last days.
The book does a great job portraying the events in an interesting light. In fact, I had never before appreciated the extent of the conspiracy and that others besides Lincoln were meant to die on the night that Lincoln was shot. It's also amazing to learn about the lax security protecting Lincoln.
The narrator is fabulous and adds to the enjoyment of the book. I highly recommend this audio edition!
This book was very interesting & kept at a good speed. We enjoyed the little side notes about the people in the book.
It was nice to hear directly from the author.
The events that led up to the death of Lincoln. You knew what was going to happen, but it was sad to see it all in the big picture.
Amazing new knowledge
Yes. Both were hard to pause anywhere if I had to.
I've also listened to" Killing Lincoln", which has more detail of the civil war. The shorter version is perfect for younger people to understand ie " Lincoln's Last Days"
I bought this to listen along as my son read the paper book. It was really good! I recommend it for anyone wanting an undertanding of the historical facts surrounding the assassination of Lincoln!
Great story, Good narration, Highly Recommend.
It is perfect for kids and adults (that would like the gore and sex of the times filtered out). As a senior, I learned a lot too!
