Pete Simonelli offers an easy-on-the-ears narration of this biography of President Grover Cleveland. To most Americans, Cleveland is little more than the response to a clue on "Jeopardy." Author Senik seeks to expand that by exploring the life and extraordinary career of an oft-overlooked historical figure. Simonelli keeps the audiobook flowing in spite of the author's sometimes overly detailed discussions of the machinations of late-nineteenth-century American politics. As there are few extended quotations, Simonelli doesn't give speakers individual voices. But he injects hints of emotion at appropriate times. Strategic pauses help set off the occasional footnotes. Listeners will be rewarded in learning about a man who deserves far more credit than history has afforded him. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2023]
