In the face of recent revisionist efforts to demean Franklin, it’s well to return to the most renowned of the Franklin biographies and winner of the 1938 Pulitzer Prize. There’s nothing extraordinary about the narration. Reader Patrick Cullen proceeds with clear enunciation at a steady pace, injects slight emotion in the few places where appropriate and generally delivers as straightforward a reading as one can expect. One never expects histrionics in a text such as this, and one is not disappointed here. The text itself is enriching and the presentation perfectly adequate.
