HOOVER An Extraordinary Life in Extraordinary Times

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Richard Ferrone

Biography & Memoir • 27.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator Richard Ferrone adds a steady voice to this provocative biography of the 31st president of the United States. Unwilling to gloss over his deficiencies or elevate his successes to legendary status, the writer and narrator enable the listener to appreciate that timing is everything. Ferrone delivers the tone and pace of the chronicler as Hoover's roller coaster of a life unfolds. His ability to encapsulate the anger and excitedness, the euphoria and deep sadness of a life spent in service keeps the listener wanting to know more about this underrated historical figure. Ferrone resurrects an extraordinary life such that audiophiles will be looking for more. T.D. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2017]
