The complex relationships of President John Adams, President Thomas Jefferson, Jefferson's Vice President Aaron Burr, former Washington Cabinet member Alexander Hamilton, and various others have been explored anew in a surfeit of recent books. This one is a rich tapestry of interwoven lives and great events. Enhanced by Jack Garrett's warm-voiced, deliberate narrative, the book gives the listener a real sense of what Adams, Jefferson, and Burr were like as individuals. Hamilton was a master manipulator whose plans sometimes went awry. Burr was an unscrupulous schemer, Jefferson a scrupulous schemer, and Adams mostly disdained scheming. Throughout, the clarity of Garrett's enunciation never drags--to the listener's benefit. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
