Edmund Morris has a knack for making biographies interesting. With someone like Theodore Roosevelt who is such a charismatic figure in our nation's history, he really shines. The descriptions of his trips out west made me want to head to the Dakotas to see the Badlands for myself. I really enjoyed how Morris tied together the political picture and not just the adventures of Roosevelt.
Also, the narration is fantastic, the voice of Roosevelt shines through and was used appropriately throughout the reading.
The last star is missing simply because I really wanted to have the unabridged version.
