History and Humor-A Great Combination!

Would you listen to The Watergate Rhymes: The Entire Watergate Story again? Why?

Yes. I LOVED the poetic narratives - so interesting, educational and "pleasant" to the ears. I could listen to this several times because I would pick up additional facts, previously missed, with each listening. There is so much information there.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Watergate Rhymes: The Entire Watergate Story?

I really enjoyed "Protesting Too Much." It is so like politications, of all eras, to deny, deny, deny - when confronted with indefensible truths. We're seeing this in today's Presidential campaign for the 2017 election. Lee does a wonderful satirical job of describing Nixon's incessant claims to innocence - funny stuff.

Which character – as performed by Lee G. Lovett – was your favorite?

I enjoyed Lee's portrayal of John Dean and Gordon Liddy. Accomplished, serious and respected characters in their day - Lee does a wonderful job in bringing out the humor of their shenanigans.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

Honestly, I had no idea that 48 people served prison time due to Watergate. That was astonishing to me and really drove home the number of co-inspirators involved in this bungled burglary.

Any additional comments?

The Watergate Rhymes is a one-of-a-kind book. The blend of history, humor, poetry and nostalgia is truly wonderful - and especially in audible format. Lee's use of poetic satire was truly meant for the listener, even more than for the reader. I recommend the book, but I enjoyed the audible version even more!
