Really a terrific recount of what led to Prohibition, its impact and ramifications. Lively read by the author, who has an excellent vocabulary and sense of humor.
Don't read what this is about: Have it be a surprise. This is a great mystery and read. Don't give up when you first hear a child's voice as one of the narrators. Wonderful, unforgettable book.
If you love Hawaii and "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," here's your book. I didn't know much about Hawaii's history, and Vowell combines her wonderful research with a modern twist. Fun experiment having other voices read the quotes, which enlivens the book.
