The protagonists all die, it was kind of like Rogue One in that way... but overall incredibly well written and performed book.

Being a student of American history I was interested in finding at this man. Adam was the last America leader that was in the middle of the beginning. His whole life center on country first.

Where does John Quincy Adams rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
One of my favourites. informative and enlightening and one I would highly recommend to anyone interested not only in US history but history and biography in general.
What other book might you compare John Quincy Adams to, and why?
American Lion by Jon Meacham. it takes the listener behind the stereotype of John Quincy Adams which is that of a failed one term president and unlikable curmudgeon. The listener might not learn to love Adams but they will hopefully come away with an appreciation of his talents and his many overlooked virtues
Which scene did you most enjoy?
Hard to choose one episode but I really enjoyed the description of Adams role in the Amistad case.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
You feel for Adams in sheer misery he endured during the presidency. And the death of his children and the suffering he endured as a result was something I had not previously known much about.
