MACARTHUR'S WAR The Flawed Genius Who Challenged the American Political System

by | Read by Sean Runnette

History • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

One secret to a good narrator is this: Is he or she interested in the content of the book? It comes across in intonation, pace, and emphasis, and Sean Runnette demonstrates it here. The author is opinionated—this is a political analysis as much as a discussion of the controversial general. But Runnette doesn’t rant; he reads at a conversational pace, yet there is an element of tension in his voice: What happens next? Can’t wait to know! Consequently, the listener is drawn in and has a hard time hitting the “stop” button. This is not a performance but a highly skilled reading, an exceptionally good one.
