did not like it
bookshelves: historical-fiction

Okay, I gave up on this book about halfway through. While the historical stuff seemed accurate and partly interesting, I just could not get into the main character. Perhaps it was the slowness of the plot (how many hunting trips do I need to tag along with Kermit Roosevelt before I get the point?), which was pretty non-existant, or the other comments I read that said the last part of the book turned into a soapy romance. It just did not seem worth it when there are so many other good books out there.
