Stephen Graybill's assured performance captures the author's focus on the space race and its part in the social and political complexities of the Cold War era...Graybill's well-paced delivery presents grounded depictions of key figures, including President John F. Kennedy, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, and former Nazi rocket scientist Dr. Wernher von Braun."
Stephen Graybill narrates this tense thriller in a steady tone that keeps the listener engaged throughout each of its chilling assassinations … Graybill successfully voices the numerous characters from various backgrounds and their many prejudices. For those of us living in cities surrounded by tall buildings, the idea that behind one of their windows there might be a sniper is terrifying. Pobi taps into that. Graybill heightens the drama without being overly dramatic.”
Stephen Graybill uses a steady professional tone for this audiobook in which ethics in journalism and the law are held to the highest standard ... Listeners who follow the battle for a free press in a time when journalists have been called the "enemy of the people" will find themselves engrossed by McCraw's insights and Graybill's confident yet mannered narration."
...Graybill creates a feeling of Hyannisport as paradise as Kennedy recalls how he grew up with an appreciation of nature even as government figures and celebrities visited regularly. He tells the story of a visit by Green Berets with childlike glee."
...Oates also has a distinctly American voice, and Tavia Gilbert, Stephen Graybill, and Caitlin Kelly are quick to make the most of the straightforward rhythms and singular tones that can make a simple sentence sound at once brightly optimistic and devastating."
