What would have made Lafayette better?
If it had focused on Lafayette.This book is about France and the doings there during Lafayette's lifetime FAR more than Lafayette. It's as if the book was written and the publisher decided a book on Lafayette would sell better, and instructed the author to pad the book with a few extra Lafayette sequences.
Would you ever listen to anything by Gonzague Saint Bris again?
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
He could have chosen a better book to read or one whose subject matched the title.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The last couple of chapters focused on Lafayette and were, thus, what I was looking to hear.
Any additional comments?
I came away with no greater understanding of Lafayette's contribution to the Revolutionary War than before. Got almost not indication of WHY Lafayette was considered such an important General in the war. Will be looking for another book for that, I guess.

The book was interesting, introductory lesson on the French and American revolutions and the events that set off the French Revolution. However, to title the book "Lafayette", when literally – and I mean literally – only half its pages cover Lafayette's life, is pretty misleading.
