In case you're asking, yes, we do need another well-researched book on the John F. Kennedy administration because new facts and interpretations are coming to light 50 years after his tragic death. And author Robert Dallek is just the sort of rock-star historian we need to deliver this message. Narrator James Lurie has a paternalistic voice that sounds as if it's meant to assure us that what we are about to hear is true, and that even the names are real. There are times when his low register becomes somnolent and he loses his energy. This is especially true during long stretches of exposition throughout the book, when Dallek needs to give background information. Lurie is better when the action picks up, such as when the book details Cold War activities. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2013]
