GRANT

by | Read by Mark Bramhall

Biography & Memoir • 40 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Ulysses S. Grant is too often stereotyped as a drunk, a brutal general, and an inept president, but none of these is true, as the author shows in this detailed biography. Mark Bramhall offers a capable narration, keeping the narrative flowing despite the work's extraordinary length. He maintains a generally even tone and pace, and uses strategic pauses to help the listener digest complex passages. When reading extended direct quotes, he varies the pitch of his voice--higher for Julia Grant, lower for newspaper accounts. He also slows his pace slightly in these passages. While his Southern accent is slightly less successful, this is a minor flaw. The audiobook is detailed, but diligent listeners will be rewarded with a more complete view of this important historic figure. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2017]
