Nadia May had a tremendous challenge in narrating this book: maintaining her energy while reading a work that is nearly a thousand pages long. She has met the challenge. Her reading is lively, crisp and sharp throughout. Johnson is a lively writer (more so than nearly all other historians), and May's reading is sensitive to Johnson's wit and sharp comments. May also reads with an accent when Johnson quotes those having one, further enlivening the work. This is a magnificent history of the United States that blends political, social and economic history.
