Dick Hill reads the latest biography of John F. Kennedy with the skill and finesse expected of his work. Kennedy comes to light with great dignity and warmth in Hill's interpretation--both the exceptional idealism that was his hallmark, as well as the less savory aspects of his personal life. The listener moves quickly through his personal life, military service, campaigns, and short presidency, but Hill keeps the pace even as the information flows. Rather than attempting Kennedy's thick Boston accent, Hill reads quotes in a slightly altered voice to set them apart from the rest of the text. The combination of a very well-written biography and Hill's narration makes this biography a must-listen. H.L.S.
