did not like it
bookshelves: currently-reading
Read in January, 2008

I just cannot get into this book. I cannot make it past the first few chapters. I have been "reading" it since it came out and yet I can't get interested in it enough to ever pick it up. Having done more than a little research on Hale myself, I didn't like Phelps's interpretation/depiction of events. As for the Hale scholars I know, they say the same thing. I think it's a shame that the only recent biography to come out on Nathan Hale isn't highly recommended by the researchers who know most about his life.
