This book pays tribute to one of history's most celebrated and revered families. It is the story of an Irish immigrant family who, through hard work, unparalleled drive and ruthless ambition, worked their way up the ladder of American society, ultimately reaching the highest office in the land. The story of the Kennedys is a true reflection of the American dream and is one you will want to hear again and again.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A narrator that pronounced places correctly Brooklne (ph) instead of Brooklyn, Sin Fine (ph) instead of Sinn Fein plus many more. Robotic no feeling a book if facts reeled off like a mad shopping list.

What could Hilary Brown and Go Entertain have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The above plus a review of who narrates.

Would you be willing to try another one of Mike Norgaard’s performances?

No

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Kennedys: The True Story Behind America's Most Powerful Family?

I would not have cut I would have added .... emotion for one.

Any additional comments?

Rubbish
