  • The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic and Madness at the Fair That Changed America

    • ABRIDGED (6 hrs and 5 mins)

    Story
    (88)

    Two men embodied an element of the great dynamic that characterized America's rush toward the 20th century: Daniel Hudson Burnham, the brilliant director of works for the 1893 Chicago World's Fair; and Henry H. Holmes, who used the attraction of the great fair and his own satanic charms to lure scores of young women to their deaths.

    KMP says: "Wonderfully evocative, and well-presented"
    "Great Story, So-So Storyteller"
    Overall

    This book is interesting for its retelling of a great moment in American and Chicago's history as well as a dark moment in its history. Larson is not the best writer. His analogies seem forced and his prose sounds choppy. Still, this book is worth listening to for the story it tells. I was sucked in right from the beginning. I didn't want to stop listening until I got to the end. I only wish I had the hardcover so that it could have been unabridged and so that I could look at any included pictures to provide a visual for my imagination. I recommend it.

    The ImmersionPlus series of original vignettes has been created especially for the intermediate to advanced foreign language students who want to improve their foreign language comprehension.

    Elayne says: "Must KNOW Spanish!"
    "Great for Advance students"
    Overall

    There aren't very many products available for spanish students who already know all the grammar and just need to practice listening to native speakers. This is one of the best options out there. I just wish they would come out with a sequel . . .
