This is the popular biography of the Booths--Junius Booth, talented actor and alcoholic father; Edwin, one of the best Shakespearean actors of all times; and John Wilkes, so likeable and attractive that his assassination of Lincoln stunned most of his acquaintances. The book is well-written and fascinating, and it translates well to audio. Narrator Nelson Runger easily maintains listener interest with his pacing and vocal abilities. Smith piles on plenty of detail, telling the story of the outer and inner lives of the Booths and Lincoln's last days from a variety of viewpoints.
