All the King's Men was an amazing read. The narrator nailed the many different personalities covered through such a challenging time in our history, where growth in politics was still anybody's ball game. Well done!
Anybody who is a student of Southern history, Huey Long, politics, depression-era, or any combination of the above will truly love this book. It was very well-narrated, witty, and full of "Southern-isms" (both original and old). While it's a long book, it's not one you ever really want to end! Not a dull moment from the first to the last disk.
A powerful, extremely well written book. I had read it years ago in college and must say my memories underrated it. Robert Penn Warren uses the english language to paint as vivid pictures as any author I've read. The book is a very interesting look at politics, history and people. It is at times a dark and somewhat disturbing look at events and people and some may find it a bit long. Overall, I think it is a masterpiece and highly recommend it.
An astonishingly good story. Robert Penn Warren paints pictures with words of great imagination and beauty. The narrator is exceptional. He has the tone and accents of the South perfectly. A long listen but very much worth the investment of time.
Robert Penn Warren (1905-1989) won three Pulitzer Prizes, the National Book Award, the National Medal for Literature, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In 1986 he was named the country's first poet laureate.
