This is such a well written, interesting book. I keep wishing we had a John Adams to vote for this November. The caveat for me is that there is so much content to this book I need to continually take a break and do some light reading between and/or at the same time. Highly recommended for any American history buff.

Lynne It took me a while to get through this one as well. Have you read "Path between the Seas"? It's my favorite McCullough book.

Toni I have not - in fact I'm not familiar with it. His research is certainly impressive!

Sarah What is Path Between the Seas about?

Lynne It's about the building of the Panama Canal.

Sarah Thank you for letting me know.

Debbie For me it was the opposite...I finished the book in less then a week from picking it up...the story so compelling I had to keep going missing sleep to do so....

Toni I agree, the story is very compelling. For me it just seemed that there was so much history to try to wrap my head around. I think I would like to hear the audio version...
