Made me dislike the former Pres
What disappointed you about Roosevelt's Beast?
Having listened to several Louis Bayard novels and even giving them some 5 ratings, this one is just awful. I'm actually surprised I kept listening. I may have gone in thinking this was more of a historical fiction novel but it ventured into sci-fi or fantasy... at least I think it did. I'm not sure if the whole thing was a malaria-induced dream.
Any additional comments?
Everything I had read about Teddy Roosevelt led me to believe he was a daring adventurer, a man's man. The voice given him by the narrator John Pruden made him sound like Ned Flanders. I got to where I didn't want him to speak at all but instead he could be long-winded. This helped to ruin this one for me.
