it was ok
bookshelves: history
Read in November, 2011

I found this quite interesting, but as a story it didn't hold my interest. Larson's other books have actually told a tale. This one seems like a long description of a slice of history, but none of the main protagonists seems to learn anything or change much as they go along. So, disappointing
