Would you consider the audio edition of Act of Treason to be better than the print version?
I'm not much into reading books as I have a pretty busy job/life reading throughout the day. That's why I like Audible.com. I just continue to do tasks around the house and listen, I get value out this method. On the Act of Treason, I did not know the detail of the Kennedy and Hoover relationship. This opened my eyes to the fact that Kennedy had his work cut out just working issues out with Hoover. A lot more info on facts leading up to the assassination that I had not heard before. Enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in this Historical event.
Have you listened to any of William Hughes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This is the first one.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No not at all. I knew I would listen to a little at a time.
Any additional comments?
I did enjoy it very much.

This is a long and incredibly detailed book clearly the result of a great deal of painstaking research. It sets out a very detailed timeline of events from the time Kennedy took office past the assassination and up until the conclusion of the Warren Commission. It feels almost like a reference book and an abridged audio book version may have worked better.
It does at times feel like its labouring a little. That said its pretty devastating on the characters of Lyndon Johnson and Edgar Hoover. The coming together of these two characters was truly a disaster for the United States. I cant say I agree with the premise of the book that only the Mafia were involved and the Hoover controlled FBI simply looked the other way and then covered it up with LBJ's full connivance. I believe the assassination conspiracy was much bigger.
