really liked it
bookshelves: biography

I think what readers will really enjoy with this one is the authors ability to keep it all in perspective. You can tell the author has no agenda, he doesn't push any "ideal" onto you he just tells you what happened and leaves the agenda pushing to the rest of us. I really liked that and thought he came at the character of Karl Marx from a number of different angles. He let you see what Marx may have looked like to his wife Jenny, to his friend Engels and to a whole host of other characters, that were both interesting and integral to his life. This was enjoyable, but perhaps not something to bother with if you are not really into this subject as it does turn out Marx's life was rather mundane.
