really liked it
bookshelves: book-club

I only made it halfway through before my book club discussed this one--I thought maybe I'd finish it, but I won't--just being real.

But it's an amazing angle on Lincoln. At first I wasn't interested in the very detailed accounts of the other politicians that Lincoln organized into his cabinet, but I ended up appreciating Goodwin's sophisticated idea that these other men were the prism through which to look at Lincoln's own political genius. The book is hefty, but really, really well done.
