I was actually surprised that I liked this book, because it's a biography. Even though it's full of facts it's written like a story. I mean, I wouldn't just read it for fun, I had to read it because I was doing a project on him. But it wasn't nearly as painful as I thought it might be, and even after the project was finished I kept reading.
