Well, I love to read and I am addicted to listening. I like mysteries the best, but a good book is a good book.

    This monumental book tells the enthralling story of one of the greatest accomplishments in our nation's history, the building of what was then the longest suspension bridge in the world. The Brooklyn Bridge rose out of the expansive era following the Civil War, when Americans believed all things were possible.

    What made the experience of listening to The Great Bridge the most enjoyable?

    This book is huge and the background part at the beginning goes on and on. Stick it out, skim it or just skip it. When you get the the the part when the father dies and they start building the bridge, it becomes amazing. The engineering issues, the worksite issues, and New York politics are fascinating. To many people I know couldn't make it through the begining, so they missed a really great book.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a safety consultant and the material about cassion work was fascinating. A great read for safety geeks like me.
