I like this series, but more than any other series it is annoying how the books seem to stop mid-story. Not so much cliff-hangers as chopping one book ...more

The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America

did not like it
I wanted this to be terrible in a nostalgic, cheesy, good way, but unfortunately it was just terrible. But at least it was a super quick read.

A good light read, but it didn't suck me in as much as I was hoping. But it was a fast read, and interesting enough to pass a few train rides.
