Great book. Gives an understanding of the development of a great man. Exceptional scholarship. Detailed to the point of wordiness, but worth sticking to is.
A really gripping read. At once didactic and personal, it increased my understanding of the ambiguous position of Native Americans in US culture and warmed my soul with its portraits of individual experience.
This book as a conundrum. On the one hand, it is very revealing about plantation life from the eyes of a slave. On the other hand, the writing style is uneven and wordy. The performance was superb, The book is at the same time interesting and boring, at once truth and fiction.
Elizabeth as a paper doll. Idealized. flat portrait of a complicated person. Stopped in the middle and erased.
This book is frightening. Are we actually being "poisoned" to the degree indicated? Impressive in detail. The research is very high level but mind-numbing. Glad I read it but left with a sense of "what next?"
A waste of time and money. Muddy. Boring. Not worthy of purchase. Do you get that I did not care for this book?
More about the king's speech therapist than the king's speech. Just one step this side of boring.
A great piiece of historical research. A;though mind-numbing in minute detail, it is a clear demonstration fhat war is as much about the individuals who lust after power and their petty jealousies that it is about national issues.
The best I have read treating the issues relating to black ghetto culture and while response. Recommended for everyone.
Sad recounting of a sad person. Exceptionally beautiful physically but exceptionally troubled emotionally. Used by the royals to produce an heir and a spare and discarded. Betrayed and betraying. Well written, Satisfying as an account of a wretched soul
