How could such a small man take the life of such a

Would you consider the audio edition of The Life, Crime and Capture of John Wilkes Booth to be better than the print version?

No, but it's easier for me to hear it on audio while driving.

What did you like best about this story?

Finding out who Booth was as a person, but I still can't understand his actions. Just another sick coward.

What three words best describe Erik Sellin’s performance?

Easy to listen.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was good, but not one that I couldn't take a break from.

Any additional comments?

This book gives you an insight of the character of Booth. It's unfortunate how such sad and sick people can have so much influence on history and our lives.
