Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This book uses improv to deliver Bob Kennedy's story. It's funny, informative, light and engaging! They did really well capturing the character of the Kennedys.
The storyline really captures his life story well too. How his perspective changed from a hardline politician whose view of the world is black and white to a liberal icon advocating for the disadvantaged.
What about the narrators’s performance did you like?
I especially loved their portrayal of the interactions Bobby had with JFK. Both voice actors were casted very well.
