Hail to the Chief

Hail To The Chief
: John Leslie, Carey Winfrey

This fast paced political thriller takes the listener deep inside the workings of a campaign ..............and on to transition of office. It kept me spellbound waiting for the next catastrophe that Skeeter would need to spin to their favor. This book had shadows of recent political happenings.

The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. David Wood's voice matched well with the story.

Great political story

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes. It's a story that I didn't want to stop listening to. If it were 20hours long somehow, I would have kept listening in rapt attention.

If you’ve listened to books by John Leslie and Carey Winfrey before, how does this one compare?


What aspect of David Wood’s performance would you have changed?

He made the vise president sound a little too weisely

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

With some adaptations, I feel that this movie could be on the big screen. I would see it yes.

Any additional comments?

I received this book free from audiobookboom.com in exchange for an unbiased review.
