Addison's aristocratic tenor is a great match for this audiobook about John F. Kennedy, one of the best-known members of America's aristocracy. Manchester's book is not a dispassionate academic biography; rather, it is in the mold of a Greek paean--a hymn of praise about a famous figure. Manchester had a personal connection to JFK and tells intimate stories about him. This audiobook focuses on the highlights of Kennedy's life and his presidency and defends JFK against criticism. Addison's reading communicates the many emotions that Manchester displays in this text. M.L.C. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
