AudiobooksNow review by Teresa on 2011-01-07 08:35:55

I enjoyed this book. Morris is not afraid to tell us that the likable, heroic rascal was alternately imposing and ridiculous. This reading is exceptional, especially for a person like myself who enjoys chuckling about diarrhea from time to time. Listen for the conspiratorial tone employed by the reader each time the young Mr. Roosevelt is stricken down by one of his famous bouts of what his family refers to as cholera morbus. Exciting, informative, and bringing the LOLs! I highly recommend giving it a listen.
