"MOST BLESSED OF THE PATRIARCHS" Thomas Jefferson and the Empire of the Imagination

by | Read by Karen Chilton

History • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Karen Chilton's fluid alto is a good fit for this biography of Thomas Jefferson. The authors are more or less successful in their attempt to present the third president in the context of his times. What we are presented with is a very human being--possessing great intellect, filled with flaws and contradictions, and still immensely fascinating nearly three centuries after his birth. Chilton's pacing and inflection are never off. She narrates with a calm demeanor, competently affecting various accents for quotes and ably giving subtle expression to the narrative. It all adds up to an enjoyable listening experience. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2016]
