The Kennedy's behind the scenes

Seem like a more of a list of history of everybody's Seem like a more of a list of history of everybody's life instead of the story of each person more like it should have been a series of books

So basic

Like stated. Just basic info. Quick google search would have been better....If you know nothing of the Kennedys it might be OK.

Awful

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
