Adventures with Exceptional "class"

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this for an adult or child. It would be fun to do as a family read, using a chapter at a time and leaving them wanting more. If you match it with the paperback, they can read along. Even better!

What did you like best about this story?

It is a positive look at the First Patriots with a little technology mixed in to make it seem more relevant to kids and even some adults, that live and die by the cell phone and internet.

Have you listened to any of Rush Limbaugh’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I enjoyed the "Pilgrims" book and await a new book in the time travel series.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I chuckled several times. I love the horse and the kids.

Any additional comments?

Forget any prejudice or preconceived feelings concerning Limbaugh and just enjoy. History come to life is always more engaging for young people, and this does the trick.

Over the top!

If you could sum up Rush Revere and the First Patriots in three words, what would they be?

Liberty is awesome.

What other book might you compare Rush Revere and the First Patriots to and why?

I cannot think of one. History books are not exciting. This is.

What about Rush Limbaugh’s performance did you like?

His voice is easy to listen to. Intriguing. Keeps me waiting for more.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No.

Any additional comments?

Please, keep this series going.

You just might learn something

Without a doubt written for a young audience...but this book is a fun romp through history that will have your kids learning more than you did in school. It appears someone did some extensive research for this book (maybe Limbaugh himself or maybe one of his staff). Anyway, I enjoyed the book, but had more fun watching my kids get into it. Funny thing is my 11 year old thought she was too grown up for it. I started it for my 8 year old and before long, my daughter was reading along with the hardback version as well. On her own, she has already gone back and listened to the first one as well. I recommend this one for a great family listen.

The children voted to stop listening!

Would you try another book from Rush Limbaugh and/or Rush Limbaugh?

Probably not.

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

This was fluff. Talking horses and time travel... okay. But when we got to the telepathy between the horse and the girl, my children had enough and didn't want to listen anymore. We will be returning this audio book. It wasn't a good match for our family.

I am amazed by how much I learned!

Would you listen to Rush Revere and the First Patriots again? Why?

I will gladly listen to both his books in this series again and again. Not only is Rush's reading engaging, but the story line AND the historical facts describing America's fight for FREEDOM has inspired me.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked best his engaging story line, sprinkled with plenty of humor and seasoned with historical fact.

What does Rush Limbaugh bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His ability to communicate through the spoken word is most helpful to me.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed out loud several times.

Any additional comments?

I heartily recommend this book to all adults who love America -- oh, and by the way, to their children as well.
