Interesting, yet mechanical
Nagel's books ties the Lee family to much of the formative events of American history from the early Jamestown colony to the American Civil War. He does a masterful job of connecting the dots, but, due to the similarity of names (which his tries to clarify), it can still be hard to follow. Lovers of U. S. history will enjoy the insights of this volume.
The audio version of this book is it's biggest downfall. The narrator's cadence, inflection, and style make it sound like a computer generated "reading." It takes some effort to get used to his style.

The Lees of Virginia
I would have given the narration a 3 if you could review the content and narration separately, but the shortcomings of the narration were more than made up for in the content, which was extremely well researched and paints a pretty comprehensive picture of this very interesting family.
