“Larson writes so well and is really able to transport the reader back in time to the period. But I'm not sure his parallel plot lines (building the white city and the serial killer) did full justice to either story. Still, his writing is compelling.”
Great book...I admire his ability to take accurate history and make it a thriller.
I'm stunned that this states I "wrote this review 5 hours ago" .... I wrote this review in 2005 when I read the book ... copied it into Shelfari sometime around 2007-2008 when I first joined and slowly entered all the info I had on various scraps of paper.
Wow, well that's a little odd!
Well, I DID look at it yesterday ... and I wanted to copy/paste it into a word document to take to a book club discussion ... maybe that activity is what made Shelfari think I wrote it yesterday.
Oh, yes! I have edited a review (typo) recently, and someone commented on it like this one. I bet that's what happened!
