JFK'S LAST HUNDRED DAYS The Transformation of a Man and the Emergence of a Great President

by | Read by Malcolm Hillgartner

History • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Clarke's examination of John F. Kennedy focuses on the fall of 1963, making the point that after almost three years in the White House, JFK was finally hitting his stride as president. Malcolm Hillgartner narrates the book and also serves as cheerleader-in-chief. He does a great job. His voice has the authoritative, assured presence necessary for a story that presents Kennedy as a man, a leader, and a tragic figure. Hillgartner's deep tone and sure pacing grab our attention from the opening music. The book is an exercise in hero worship and lamentations of what might have been, and Hillgartner channels that message, making this an impressive listening experience.
