Recommended to Stephanie by: Book club
Read in January, 2008

I did not get the point of this book until the end and then realized it was about how society changed dramatically during the industrial revolution. How the car changed the cities, why all of the beautiful old homes are in the worst parts of town. When I was done I was so glad I read it to better understand how American cities have developed.

Andrew To me Stephanie has EXACTLY understood the point of the book in her sentence "How the car changed the cities, why all of the beautiful old homes are in the worst parts of town."

Stephanie - have you seen the Orson Welles film?
