Read from February 06 to 26, 2014

don't get me wrong, this is an entertaining read. worked through it quickly and efficiently. the author does a fine job of weaving what is ultimately an exceptional tale. so many topics, people and places come up in generally discussing the history of the City of Houston and the legendary opulence of the Texans of the era. and from that perspective, I would recommend this reading to anyone interested in 20th century Texas history.

now with that said, I'm happy I read the book. but for me it was just a good book, not a great book. the story is well told, but it does not rival some of the finer narrative non-fiction that I prefer. good read -- just not a super high "wow factor" for me.
