did not like it
bookshelves: will-not-finish

Long winded. Yikes. I made it to about page 80 and there was only 2 first person items actually written by Garvey himself. The majority of the info consisted of what was going on around him at the time (some of which is vital to get into the mind set of the subject, but yeesh!) and what other people were doing. This book could probably have lost 40% of its length. Otherwise call it the "Life and Times of...". Lame.
