Everything in an Hour Except The Cherry Tree!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
YES! History with all those dates and names never really made a dent in my mind in school, but to listen to a 1hour abridged version of this Great Man was impressive. The story distilled all the most important facts, battles and characteristics of a complex man from birth to death without seeming too shallow.
Have you listened to any of Jonathan Keeble’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Many. I never realized how young Washington was when he started a professional career (17) and led his first troops (21). It makes you realize that The College Years have replaced good common sense and hard work of a yesteryear gone.
Any additional comments?
I NEVER realized Washington was 6ft 3in. He looks so short on The Dollar Bill! : )
