LINCOLN'S BOYS John Hay, John Nicolay, and the War for Lincolns Image

by | Read by Malcolm Hillgartner

Biography & Memoir • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

This audiobook isn't about Abraham Lincoln but about the two men most responsible for the Lincoln we know today. Narrator Malcolm Hillgartner offers a steady reading that makes the work flow along nicely. Lincoln's private secretaries had a front-row seat on history, from Springfield, Illinois, to the White House. After Lincoln's death, John Hay and John Nicolay wrote the definitive biography, based on official papers no one else had access to. The author liberally uses direct quotes, and Hillgartner pauses ever so slightly before each, suggesting quotation marks with his silence. He also occasionally gives speakers a regional accent. Both actions are effective. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2014]
