What made the experience of listening to Hail to the Chief the most enjoyable?

Great writing. The story keeps you moving forward with twists and turns. I love the newspaper columns to help move the narrative forward.

What other book might you compare Hail to the Chief to and why?

This book is a cross between Vince Flynn and an early Jerry Bruckheimer political thriller.

What about David Wood’s performance did you like?

David did a really nice job with pacing, with character voices and with his overall acting through the entire book. There are some audiobooks where you know within 30 seconds the narrative style isn't for you. Not the case with David's performance. He keeps you engaged and moving forward. You feel like you're there in the room with these characters.

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.
