Cussler does it again. The Fargos are becoming favorites of mine as I hear of their exploits. The author is able to balance action/historical drama and embellishment with technical data to make the great majority of the story-telling fascinating. Some of the technical description along with spatial description was hard to follow at points. But this does not detract from the over all enjoyment of the genre. I will go back to them again.
I loved this book. I didn't think I would as much as I did, but I loved it. While I was only 8 years old when the President was shot, there was enough association that pulled me into the mindset of mid-century America. King is amazing at telling a story and so skilled at developing characters. I really enjoyed how all the players took life in this enjoyable piece of historical fiction.
I did have one complaint with the narration. I personally knew Marguerite Oswald, the mother of Lee Harvey. I helped care for her in the last years of her life. She was from New Orleans and had the distinctive French influenced accent unique to New Orleans. Her with a "redneck-esque" sound was a little disturbing. Otherwise, I feel in love with the characterizations.
You won't go wrong with this one. Its worth your time.
Another interesting Fforde product.
Fforde's word play and innuendos are delightful
I don't know. Some of the narration seemed stiff
