I read the book The Great Depression: A Diary by Benjamin Roth. I did not like this book. The book went from one topic to the next and it was very hard to follow. I also didn't like that there were no characters. Having characters would give you a better understanding for what people went through during the great depression. Even when the author discussed the stock market crash and people losing their money it would have had more of an impact if it was based on real characters. I would have like for Benjamin's diary entries to be more about his clients. There are only a few entries on the clients and this was my most favorite part of the book. It was hard to figure out the author's point of view on FDR. Some of his thoughts seem to support President Hoover but others seemed to support FDR. I would not recommend this book.
