MY THOUGHTS BE BLOODY The Bitter Rivalry Between Edwin and John Wilkes Booth That Led to an American Tragedy

by | Read by John Bedford Lloyd

Biography & Memoir • 19.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

The assassination of Abraham Lincoln was not politically motivated but a final desperate act of sibling rivalry between two tortured souls. That is the theme of this work about John Wilkes Booth and his older brother, Edwin, the most famous actor in late-nineteenth-century America. John Bedford Lloyd offers a solid, even reading. His voice has a serious, slightly rough-hewn tone that exactly suits this work. He doesn't try to give the characters distinctive voices, but it’s always clear when he delivers quoted material. The book is long and detailed, but Lloyd does a reasonably good job of keeping it from becoming tedious. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2010]
