Description

Churchill: A Life follows Winston Churchill from his earliest days to his moments of triumph. Here, the drama and excitement of his story are ever-present. Martin Gilbert gives us a vivid portrait, using Churchill's most personal letters and the recollections of his contemporaries, both friends and enemies, to go behind the scenes of some of the stormiest and most fascinating political events of our time.

Part 1 takes us from Churchill's birth to the end of the First World War. Christian Rodska reads the first part of Martin Gilbert’s epic, definitive biography of Winston Churchill.

Not a two volume work

The book has been cut in half to double its price. It’s not a 2 volume work, nor is it even a particularly long book.

This is an abridged version

The book is magnificent and the narration is great also. This, however, is an abridged version of the book. They should make that clear.

Amazing

Christian Rodska is simply amazing narrating this book - as always, and must certainly rank in the elite voices. He does many accents, and a very good American accent, which is actually rare, and so well done. The book itself is superbly written and moves at a good pace. Good job.

Engaging biography of a great man, part 1

Although rather long, this is well worth listening to. It is quite straightforward and has no hero-worship. Today one does not hear enough about this great man, and such books redress that somewhat. The author is Churchill's authorized biographer, an eminent historian. The narration is well done.

Entertaining and virtuoso performance

The two parts of Martin Gilbert's tome are OK: a rather matter-of-fact recounting of Churchill's life. I sometimes missed some interpretation of events and decisions.
The performance by Rodska is wonderful. Dramatic, but not over the top, well paced and intelligent. And the way he switches between accents is virtuosic, going seamlessly from "Winstonesque" to South African to posh or whatever else the text throws at him (though it is somewhat disconcerting to hear a quote from an 8 year old Winston with the intonation we're all familiar with).

A "great read" . Filled in many gaps my knowledge

Great additions to my knowledge of Winston, Turkey, S. Africa, WWI, etc. Knew little of WC''s changes from conservative to liberal. Had never known all beligerants in WWI used mustard gas. Looking forward to Vol. 2.

really tough to listen to

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

no. I find myself less focused when I listened to this one vs. other audible books
