Publisher's Summary

Resentful of their government's abuses and usurpations, thirteen colonies declared their right to become independent States. The Declaration of Independence codified beliefs held in common by thirteen British-American colonies. These beliefs included the assertion that it is "the duty" of the people to terminate an abusive government. That obstructions should not be placed against the lawful migration and naturalization of foreigners. That military intervention should never supersede local civil authority. And that civilians, regardless of the allegations against them, should never be held or tried outside of their regional civilian court system.

Does not work

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

If it played

Has Declaration of Independence turned you off from other books in this genre?

Hard to say

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He was missing

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Its price makes it less a slap in the face and more a rude bump in public

Any additional comments?

Tried on Android and iOS, both Audible apps crashed as soon as I tried opening this. Everything else works.
