Biography #1 - The Last Lion

The full title is: The Last Lion: Winston Spencer Churchill: Defender of the Realm, 1940-1965.  This is Volume 3.


It took me all year to read; I actually listened to most of it.  I have the hardest time reading non-fiction so I figured this would be the best way (Audible.com).  I actually enjoyed it but it was about 60 hours long.

I'd like to give a book report but I'm not great at that.  Churchill is a fascinating character and this obviously delves deeply into the history.  This would be a great book to listen to when taking a very long road trip.

oh and btw, I highly recommend audible -- the narrator was excellent.  I plan to read/listen to volumes 1 and 2 as well.  Not sure when.

Very cool. I just listened to a podcast about his mother.

Winston was an interesting guy. I've read a bit about his early life, but that's been a while ago.
