Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Fans of Fritz's lively nonfiction will be disappointed that this audio adaptation falls a bit flat. Perhaps Hughes is fettered by the historically accurate style of Fritz's prose, which is smoothly crafted but lacks dramatic dialogue. Hughes is primarily cast in the role of narrator, having little actual character work available to her to add color. Overall, her reading, though pleasant, is placid and restrained. Some listeners may draw comparisons with the experience of hearing a not particularly dynamic elementary school teacher reading a book to the class: one can follow and enjoy the tale, but the reader doesn't bring much to the story other than to act as a conduit for the author's text.
