Narrator Edward Lewis has terrific diction, excellent pacing and good technical skills. His voice, though, is monotonous and, as Dorothy Parker might have said, spans the vocal range from A to B. In small doses, Lewis comes off as informative and authoritative. Listening for an extended period of time is difficult because his voice begins to sound robotic. This is a shame because he has great material. Author Brinkley's solid, detailed book about Jimmy Carter’s post-White House years yearns for more power and emotion than Lewis can give. The book is worth a listen, but it cries out for more narrative depth. R.I.G. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
