Apr 11, 2010

it was ok
bookshelves: 2010, newbery
Read from April 11 to June 13, 2010

My favorite part was the end, when the author talks about the future and how historians impact the way history is remembered. A huge book, and a huge undertaking. Probably blew people's brains away when it came out.

Shannon I realized that about 300 pages have been added since this book was published in 1921. Because that's not part of the Newbery-winning content, I'm not going to read it. :-P
