This was an extremely engaging audio book. There were no moments of long drawn out information spewing. A very lively story. Very excited to move on to the next volume. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is Mr. Pratt mispronounced a handful of words multiple times. Not that I think I could do any better. It was just really distracting.
The book is full of excessive detail that gets in the way of telling a good story about a great man. Reminded me of times I've been trapped next to someone at a dinner party who felt compelled to give me every precise fact about whatever they were describing.
The reader is one of my least favorite - too dramatic. His souther accent is almost like fingernails on a blackboard - maybe not THAT bad.
I was hoping Vol 2 would be better, but it was similar.
Wonderful topic . . . not presented in a manner I enjoyed. The Carl Sandburg book is better. Shelby Foote's work about the Civil War is better still.
