A very lengthy but wonderful history of the Civil War! Please add Vol.2!
Mr. Foote guides us through the first two years of The American Civil War, and masterfully puts us in a timeline to understand the era. Besides fully skipping the main causes of the war and one point put "Rebellious Traitors" in quotation points, Mr. Foote tries to remain unbiased. Grover Gardner does a excellent job of narrating the story as well and is one of the best narrators I have ever heard.
Overall the Novel is 9/10 and narration is 10/10
Love the detail of not only the events, but the forces that led up to them, the personalities involved,(including physical descriptions and their backgrounds.), and the results.
My only regret is that Foote didn't narrate himself. While the narrator chosen does a fine job, Shelby's drawling accent would be a gift!
Neglects the economic and social aspects of
the History but is adherent to archives and attempts to give an objective storyline.
The audio is not tolerable due to the clipping of words at the beginning of sentences. The book and the narrator were excellent but the quality of the audio made this presentation worthless.
