by | Read by Jimmy Carter, Boyd Gaines

Biography & Memoir • 23 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

This book is a collection of the author’s diaries, notes, and musings while he was in the White House from 1977-1981. Each chapter includes narrative, which Carter reads, and the actual diary entries and notes, which are read by Boyd Gaines. Both give admirable readings. Carter still has his homey Georgia accent and speaks with the assurance of someone who’s been on the world stage for more than 40 years. There are times when he speaks too fast, making some words difficult to understand, but he still engages us with importance of what he’s saying. Gaines uses his narrative skills to emphasize key points and give voice to Carter’s written words. His diction and pacing are excellent. There are no bells and whistles in either man’s performance, and that fits well with the tone of the audiobook. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2011]
