This book was a little hard for me to get through since it was basically a historical account of what happened during the time, so the outcome is already known. None of that suspense to keep you wondering what's going to happen. But, because I had recently visited Chicago, I did find it interesting. It's totally amazing what they did to pull off the Worlds Fair - SO MUCH work! This book just wasn't as thrilling as the type of book I typically enjoy - but good :)!
