Would you consider the audio edition of The Patriarch to be better than the print version?
Yes, the narration was a plus to the story.
What other book might you compare The Patriarch to and why?
It's hard to say as it was somewhat contemporary, thus one feels like you were around at the time. On the other hand we got wonderful insights on a man who functioned in this world we think we know. You can't compare it to a biography of say Churchill; more like Howard Hughes. (Who was that, Irving?0
Have you listened to any of Malcolm Hillgartner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Don't recall, but this was great.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
What moved me? It's not that sort of narrative. You feel like you are getting an inside look at a very complicated man and his relationships with his family, friends and his own conscious. I could not wait to get back to it.
Any additional comments?
Nassau did a lot of homework and it shows. He is an excellent writer. The subtlety used to draw out very difficult topics and subjects gives it credibility. You find yourself impatiently waiting to get to the next stage of his life.
The narrator did a masterful job and added to the enjoyment of this book.

One of the best - and most gripping - biographies I have ever read. The reader is excellent - even his approximation of various accents is good and not distracting.
