Brian Kilmeade clearly is excited by his subject, and the story of George Washington's spy ring during the American Revolution is indeed an exciting story. But in his narration of the book he cowrote, he needs to dial back some of that enthusiasm. He adds emphasis to passages and even words that don't warrant it. He also pauses at awkward and even unexpected points in sentences. In remarks at a book signing this would be acceptable, but in a book-length reading it becomes distracting. A more studied reading of the book, adding emphasis more judiciously, would have done the subject greater justice. To make the book longer, the authors include basic information about the American Revolution, which nearly all listeners will already know.
