It's easy to see why this book won a Pulitzer Prize, and why it was so easy for the movie adaptation to win Academy Awards. Woodward and Bernstein craft a tale as suspenseful as a fine novel, but it's even more fascinating because it's the true story of the Watergate cover-up. Richard Poe provides an appropriately nuanced narration. Not only does he shift tones to match the content, style, and tempo of the wide-ranging prose, Poe provides near-imitations of the many famous figures, such as Kissinger and Nixon, who appear in the book. Poe provides such a range of voices that the result sounds like a full-cast production. G.T.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
