The music that frames the beginning of Robert Fass's narration sets the tone for the rest of this audiobook about John Marshall, who became the Supreme Court's chief justice in 1801. The work is classy, dramatic, and important, and Fass doesn't disappoint as he uses his warm, low tone and clear diction to interpret the author's words so that we can enjoy and learn from them. Fass provides a consistent delivery, pausing effectively for emphasis, which allows the drama of the court cases Marshall heard to take center stage. While Fass doesn't employ an especially expressive or elastic voice, he does enough to keep this analysis of one of our most influential Supreme Court justices interesting and noteworthy.
