First the one negative point: 2 chapters repeated themselves WITHING sections of the download. Very aggravating. Complaints done.
Audible.com has helped me really appreciate the history poor texts spoiled for us in school. Adams, Jefferson, Jefferson and Mason and the making of a nation, and others flesh out and make real a time that still resonates for the world and us, whether in fulfillments of our values or in the sometimes abandonment of our values.
The narrator is excellent.
My tears over the tragedy of the loss of life in any war and the deep passions and fears were brought out as I listened to this narrative. Each of the characters were vibrant and I trembled with excitement at some of the battles while mourning those who endured those times.
Washington comes out almost as mythical in this account as we read of him in our high school textbooks.
This books is a joy.

The Glorious Cause
After reading the biography of John Adams this book added much to my understanding of the times and the people involved. I could not stop to eat and listened to the book from start to finish.
