This was an excellent book. I love when authors read their own work, and I couldn't have been happier with Hampton Sides. It reads like fiction, and makes learning about history fascinating. I was quite young when the events in this book happened, but Sides' story brought the world of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the events that were happening alive. The tragic assassination of King is worthy of reflection. I will recommend this book to everyone and have my children listen to it as well.
This is a wonderful story and a must for all of you James Lee Burke fans! I love the true accounts of Hurricane Katrina that he used in the book. Very moving.
