    From its inception, Atlantic City has always been a town dedicated to the fast buck, and this wide-reachinghistory offers a riveting account of its past 100 year, from the city's heyday as a Prohibition-era mecca of lawlessness to its rebirth as a legitimate casino resort in the modern era.

    Story
    Would you listen to Boardwalk Empire again? Why?

    Perhaps ,I might have read the second half, but I can’t say since I became bored to death by the first three hours of the reading; a precise History of Southern NJ railroad system as related to Transportation to Atlantic City. Joe Montagne is a great reader/narrator but nevertheless I had to put the book down. Wish I had returned it back then but I wasn’t aware of that option. When Working with Audio books it is difficult to jump ahead (or back) to a set point in the book.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Again, I can’t say because I never finished the book. I can say It is too long for my reading temperament.


    Did Joe Mantegna and Terence Winter (foreword) do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    They are both excellent readers


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Again, I can’t say because I never finished the book. I can't really comment


    Any additional comments?


    sorry, NO.
