0.This was very good nonfiction. It looked at a fascinating segment of our history, and traced the Prohibition movement from its earliest hints to its lasting effects on our government and culture. It also explored the role of women and children in the movement, and highlighted some of the more prominent characters of the time period, like Carrie Nation and Al Capone. Great nonfiction, but it did not, for me, cross the line into "reads like fiction."
