I have decided to do biographies for a little bit because they don't suck me in as much as fiction. This book was a good introduction to Abraham Lincoln. I would like to read more because I understand that to some people he's a very controversial figure and I'm curious about that. For instance, Lincoln is my mom's favorite president and my friend's husband's least(?) favorite president. This book didn't portray him as either a saint or a demon but this is really all I've read about him personally, so I will have to delve a little deeper to form any real opinion. So far I am just glad that he didn't let the south succeed because I either wouldn't be in the U.S.A. today if he did or I wouldn't be living in Virginia right now if he did.
