  • Conquering Gotham: The Construction of Penn Station and Its Tunnels

    Story

    The demolition of Penn Station in 1963 destroyed not just a soaring neoclassical edifice, but also a building that commemorated one of the last century's great engineering feats: the construction of railroad tunnels into New York City. Now, in this gripping narrative, Jill Jonnes tells this fascinating story - a high-stakes drama that pitted the money and will of the nation's mightiest railroad against the corruption of Tammany Hall, the unruly forces of nature, and the machinations of labor agitators.

    "Brilliant"
    Overall

    An absolutely wonderful history book. A compelling tale brought to life by an excellent author and an excellent reader. Highly recommend for anyone who likes history, trains, New York City, or stories set in the early-20th century.

    Story

    John and Jenny were just beginning their life together. They were young and in love, with a perfect little house and not a care in the world. Then they brought home Marley, a wriggly yellow furball of a puppy. Life would never be the same.

    Reade says: "One of the worst"
    "Boring and vapid"
    Overall

    What a terrible book. I really want to like it, because I like the dog way more than either of the people.
    Some things in this book seriously infuriated me (like saying a training collar is designed to bring the dog to "gasping submission" - that's not how a training collar works or is supposed to be used) while I simply found most of it to be boring.
    The author's voice is pretty terrible for reading as well.
    Don't waste a credit.
