This audiobook offers insight on Andrew Jackson's journey to the presidency and the period in which it took place. Despite a rather dubious background, Jackson's followers helped to create an American icon who won the presidency in 1828. Narrator Molly Parker Myers adopts a steady tone throughout the history. Her clear elocution is particularly effective, making it easy to follow the information provided, yet she also has a pleasant, likable cadence. While there are not many opportunities for vocal characterizations, Myers usually differentiates the quotes with a more serious tone. Packed full of rich historical detail, this biography is hardly dull, and Myers's narration makes the listening experience truly enjoyable.
