Intriguingly, this audiobook charts not the events leading to the American Revolution, but the concepts of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness that culminated in the Declaration of Independence. Golden Voice narrator John Lee is a familiar and reliable guide to the era when Britain and the American colonies were still one. Their relationship was characterized by easy exchanges of ideas and correspondence, and a civil airing of differences. Benjamin Franklin is the chief figure here, along with printer Wiliam Strahan, literary giant Samuel Johnson, and writer/activist Thomas Paine, who arrives at the end to usher in a new rhetoric of liberty and self-actualization. Lee delivers an impeccable performance of a narrative rich in wit, character portrayals, and fresh insights on how the American Revolution came about.
