it was ok
bookshelves: book-club, non-fiction
Read in January, 2010

I was expecting to find this more involving that it was but maybe I was just too distracted by outside problems to enjoy anything at all. Let's just say that this did not come up to the level of those non-fiction books that "read like fiction" such as In the Heart of the Sea. It had moments where I was fully engaged but most of the time I found it to be too jumpy with many changes of time that were confusing. Often far too much detail so that I felt bogged down. My ARC edition had no photos and they were much missed as was a map to follow the "trail". Did learn a few things so not sorry to have read the book. f2f discussion was OK- some new people came and we had Almond Cake from Mrs Lincoln's recipe.
