Biography & Memoir • 21 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1994

From boisterous Teddy to driven Eleanor, from playful jabs to deep-seated political rivalry between Roosevelt familial branches, The Roosevelts reads like a novel, rife with lively characters and intriguing circumstances. Such a work demands a straightforward yet empathetic narration. Jeff Riggenbach blends these qualities in his performance, bringing the listener in close to the Roosevelt clan. His sincere yet alluring presentation gives listeners an aloof intimacy with their subjects, feeling all at once part of the family yet grateful for the detachment. This production stands out as a model for audio biography. Production quality is good, making it easy listening for the commuting audience. The text stands on its own merit and is further enhanced by Riggenbach’s excellent performance. J.S.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 95]
