The straightforward, earnest narration Pete Cross brings to the story of America's sixteenth president suits both the well-researched narrative and the character of the beloved historical figure. In addition to the biography, this audiobook explains the lasting importance of several Constitutional amendments and the road to the Emancipation Proclamation, and provides contextual information, such as how the Democratic and Republican parties of today differ from their historical counterparts. All of this is presented in Cross's calm, measured tones. Since the text is highlighted by a considerable number of quotes from Lincoln's writing, which help to affirm him as self-effacing yet determined in his political opinions, Cross makes the most of words infused with humor, gravity, and wit. This is a well-rounded portrait of an American icon. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
