Publisher's Summary

In this powerful, eerily convincing fictional speculation on the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Don DeLillo chronicles Lee Harvey Oswald's odyssey from troubled teenager to a man of precarious stability who imagines himself an agent of history.
When "history" presents itself in the form of two disgruntled CIA operatives who decide that an unsuccessful attempt on the life of the president will galvanize the nation against communism, the scales are irrevocably tipped.
A gripping, masterful blend of fact and fiction, alive with meticulously portrayed characters both real and created, Libra is a grave, haunting, and brilliant examination of an event that has become an indelible part of the American psyche.

Narrator's Monotonous Tone Ruined Book

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A different narrator. It sounded as if Joe Friday from Dragnet was reading the book.


Would you recommend Libra to your friends? Why or why not?

No. The narrator ruined the book for me.


How could the performance have been better?

It sounded like he was reading the phone book. There was no modulation between characters. It made listening an unpleasant chore.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I might read it one day. I think I would have liked it much better.
