Where does Killing Reagan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

An honest look inside not only the assassination attempt but the Reagan presidency as well.I still think he was a very good president, not matched since, but I believe I see him through a more realistic light.
I believe him to have been in the in the early grips of Alzheimer's. Not much was known about it at the time but it would seem he was sufficiently diminished. Perhaps enough to enact the 25th amendment.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Killing Reagan?

The information directly after the assassination attempt.

What about Robert Petkoff and Bill O'Reilly ’s performance did you like?

I liked the book. The performance was fine.
I could do without the impressions, sounds cheesy to me. I think that about all books not just this one.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Killing Reagan
The story behind the man

Any additional comments?

Thanks Bill O'Reilly I love your books!

What did you like best about RFK Jr.? What did you like least?

Tells what everyone knows but is afraid to say out loud due to the "Kennedy repercussions". Entitled from birth, raised to be a selfish, self serving spoiled adult leave a trail of destruction everywhere he goes and sees nothing wrong.

Would you recommend RFK Jr. to your friends? Why or why not?

I would but why spend money to confirm what you already know?

What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

I liked it. Tried to represent the book accurately.

Reviewed: 10-23-14

What made the experience of listening to The Scourge of the Swastika the most enjoyable?

I learned more than I thought I already knew, brought out the human tragedy in detail.

What other book might you compare The Scourge of the Swastika to and why?

Knights of the Bushido. Unvarnished and not white washed for pc purposes. Sticks to the facts, sickening as some were.

Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?

Can't really narrow that down.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

That the men committing these horrors believed this was the right thing to do, had no regrets of their actions. That was constantly emphasized in the book, it was not just one moment

Traitor to His Class audiobook cover art
  • Traitor to His Class
  • The Privileged Life and Radical Presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Not what it seems to be

Performance

Story
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 07-12-14

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I expected an objective book that reviewed the flaws as well as the successes, The ramifications of his actions, good and bad. Instead this is the glorification of a man with very human traits that were not as selfless as is portrayed,

What do you think your next listen will be?

Nothing from this author

What didn’t you like about Mark Deakins’s performance?

It was good but monotone. This may have been the content and length.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

Don't do it
