I love Mary Roach. I hate this snarky, superior, judgmental narrator. She absolutely ruined this book for me.
I'd be hard-pressed to find a more poetically written contemporary novel. That said, it incredibly depressing, even with its reprieves.
Symposiums and Their Origin
Good book and narrator. I'm not sure if it because I read a lot but I knew a great deal of this already and I read nonfiction to learn new things. Still, it was a pleasurable read.
A well-researched and highly informative book about a time period seldom dwelt upon, Destiny of the Republic is a very worthwhile read. I had no idea what a brilliant and accomplished man James Garfield had been, how ignorant and inflexible the state of medical care was, and how insane and delusional the thoughts of assassin Charles Guiteau. Highly recommended.
