Ever since I stumbled across the Lost Constitution last year, I've been a big fan of William Martin. Since then, I've read all of his Peter Fallon books and enjoyed them tremendously. Martin masterfully weaves together fact and fiction to create page-turner after page-turner. Although I tend to not enjoy the way Martin ends his tales, I find myself so caught up in the story that I don't care about the disappointment I've come to expect from his novels' anti-climatic endings. If you are a fan of Steve Berry, Dan Brown or even powerhouses such as Ken Follett and Edward Rutherfurd, I believe that you will enjoy this book as well as Martin's many others.
One of the best most evenhanded historical fiction's about slavery I would recommend this book for any classroom or just enjoyable reading
If you have the patience it is worth it. The book reads like a thesis but you will learn a lot
The real story of King's final year will send chills down your spine, the betrayal by friends and the media, the depression, the imperfections of MLK and eventually the regicide give readers/listeners a tragic look into the life of one of Americas most heroic leaders.
This was his first performance
The book made me aware and put me at peace with the real legacy of MLK
I would. David and Goliath was extremely informative and as usual with Gladwell's books creates a different way to think of the world that has practical applications with everyday life.
I loved the story about why going to an Ivy League school may be bad for you or your child.
Yes. I could not put it down
It is a book that will deliver.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. It is a lesson in why Clinton would have been a better option than Obama and why JFK was probably all style and little substance.
How clever Johnson was in passing the the civil rights act of 1964
The assassination of JFK and how even then people knew that something was wrong with the lone gunman theory.
One of the great novels of any genre, but if you love the civil war you are in for a ride.
It started a little slow, but while sitting on the train Something was said and I could not stop listening. You won't be able to stop listening, the characters are tragic but inspirational. You Wont Be Able To Stop Listening
I was once a huge fan, then he became in my opinion a great disappointment. This book renewed my faith in Obama although named "The Obamas" it is really about Michelle. You find out that he still holds the values that sent him to the white house, but as always things are more complicated than they seem.
If you are a fan or once was this book will sit with you and you will respect him again.
My mom was one of the southern African Americans who made the trip to Boston all those years ago. She never talked about her trip and her reasons for leaving. I never asked. This books brings incredible insight into her story and ultimately my history. I would recommend it to all, but in particular those who wonder what struggles your parents who migrated from the south all those years ago may have been like.
A great book! Rarely am I so moved and captivated by a book that I can not get a book out of my mind. A dog lover myself, I now look at my dog and wonder what he understands
