    The Teapot Dome scandal of the early 1920s was all about oil - hundreds of millions of dollars� worth of petroleum. When the scandal finally broke, the consequences were tremendous. President Harding's legacy was forever tarnished, while �Oil Cabinet� member Albert Fall was forced to resign and was imprisoned for a year. Others implicated in the affair suffered prison terms, commitment to mental hospitals, suicide, and even murder.

    Paul says: "Harding's return to normalcy: corruption"
    "Wow"
    Overall

    This is a great book, before starting it I thought had I idea what Teapot was, but I had no idea it was this big. Forget the last 30 years of scandal / corruption, these guys knew how to cheat the people. It is almost funny what these men almost pulled off.

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    What did you like best about The Name of the Wind? What did you like least?

    Good story, very entertaining in parts. Unfortunately it goes on and on and on with many long passages that are filler at best.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It would have been fine if half as long


    What does Nick Podehl bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Narrator was fine, voices well done.
