Intersting lay man's book. On the one hand, it inspires me to look up more on the topic ie wood alcohol, and other types of alcohol. I never thought of prohibition and alcohol as poison before. I knew of prohibition but did not realize the extent people would go for a buzz. It was a good start but left me wanting more information. More indepth. I think there should be a suggested reading list at the end of the book and/or I would like to see another book if there isn't one already by the author that goes into more detail or more on the subject. It doesn't have to be about New York (I love New York) but I want more! Ms Blum peaked my interest, more please.
It was an entertaining book to listen to that didn't require me to follow the plot closely i.e. I could listen to the book on my I pod while running errands and cleaning house.I wouldn't have picked Laura Childs scrap booking series if I didn't like listening to the books.
Didn't have a favorite character.
She was the perfect person to read the book.
Laura Childs needs to learn a few key curse words to replace her all encompassing word "poop" which doesn't qualify as a curse word in my opinion. That's what you say in front of a kid instead of a real curse word.First time I heard it used in one her books, that made me laugh.
The narrator was good and the story was a fun one. Very enjoyable. Not so intense that it was hard to follow as an audible book. It made my long run more enjoyable.
The plot was fun, uncomplicated and interesting.
You can't read and run at the same time.
No particular moment moved me but I enjoyed the interaction of the characters. I want to know what happens to them.
