In a story rich with irony, satire, and comedy, Michael Prichard reads as straight as Jack Benny, using perfect timing to create an entertaining interpretation of a riveting era. Energy flows from his animated tempo, which keeps the bank robberies and prison breaks pumping our adrenaline as we learn little-known details of famous crimes. Although Prichard gives excellent imitations of FDR and Winston Churchill, he usually characterizes more subtly. The Dillinger Days is history told like a story, with cleverly chosen anecdotes ideal for an entertaining audiobook. The reader's cadence and articulation add zest to a quality work. J.A.H.
