Nathaniel Such a good book.

Jennifer D This is a cool pairing, Cindy!

message 3: by Cindy (new)

Cindy Yeah, that time period is really interesting. I might also throw in Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass to round it out?

message 4: by Heather (new)

Heather I'm with Nathaniel, this is a really great book. I've loved everything I've read by Doris Kearns Goodwin.

message 5: by Cindy (new)

Cindy Woohoo!

message 6: by Heather (new)

Heather I'm glad you liked it! I heart Goodwin, a lot. As far as other Lincoln books, I have A. Lincoln: A Biography, but I haven't gotten to it yet. It looks good, though :-)

Cindy Oh crud, that one looks good. Especially that people say White analyzes Lincoln's speeches.

Meghan What Jennifer said--awesome combo.

message 9: by Kathy (new)

Kathy Heard today that this book is being made into a movie directed by Steven Spielberg. Just wanted to pass that information on to you.

Cindy Whoa, crazy. I wonder who will play Abe?

message 11: by Kathy (new)

Kathy Daniel Day Lewis is Abe and it is being filmed now, suppose to be released the end of next year.

Cindy Wow, great choice! If you have a link to a story, let me know!

Brenda you might like to read Russell Banks' 'Cloudsplitter', a novel about John Brown. When I finished this book I wanted to get more of the Civil War story, and that led me to 'Team of Rivals'. I liked both of them, were each great reads.
