Thomas Jefferson From Boy to Man by Jayne DAlessandro Cox is a non-fiction audio book that serves as a biography of Thomas Jefferson’s life from childhood to adulthood. This is a book that would appeal to a mixed audience of young adults and adults who enjoy historically accurate accounts of Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson is well known for having been an inventor, lawyer, natural philosopher, president, and much more, but what most people do not know is how a young boy grew into the man that would become such a widely known historical figure. Are you ready to learn about Jefferson, not just as a historical figure, but as a unique person?

Thomas Jefferson From Boy to Man by Jayne DAlessandro Cox was a book that I was instantly interested in as Thomas Jefferson was one of my favorite figures in my high school history classes. I found the author did a wonderful job of keeping the book historically accurate regarding both the time period and Thomas Jefferson’s life. The aspect of this book that truly set it apart from others on Thomas Jefferson is the way it shared history while keeping it interesting. There were sections that held my interest in the same manner a fictional novel would.

Thomas Jefferson From Boy to Man by Jayne DAlessandro Cox was narrated jointly by James Brinkley, Alexander Brinkley, Christina Rideout, and Jayne DAlessandro Cox. James Brinkley’s voice acting of a middle-aged Thomas Jefferson clearly showcased his ability to really get into the mind space of a character. It was Brinkley’s voice acting that truly pulled me into the book as I was able to get lost in his voice.
