Sigh, yaaaaawn, so far it's more of a biography of Roebling than a story about the building of the bridge - but it???s still early, I???m not even half done. A lot of dry dates and names; I???m no good with that kind of detail because it just does not stick in my brain! I should have gone for the abridged version of the book??? no pun intended!
Well ok, maybe a little pun.
I wanted a story about the BRIDGE. That's it.
I must say that I had high expectatons about this book but I was disappointed to find out that this was not a novel, but a chronicle about every single engineering and political detail behind the making of the bridge.
Unfortunately I wasn't made aware that 'The great bridge' wasn't a novel, but a historic piece. Consequently I've wasted one credit.
