    In a thrilling narrative showcasing his gifts as storyteller and researcher, Erik Larson recounts the spellbinding tale of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Also available abridged.

    Overall

    I bought this book based on the glowing reviews but I have to say now almst 3 hours in I am really starting to wonder. It is a nice depiction of Chicago, and perhaps if I accept it as a history lesson and not the murder mystery I thought I was getting, it will be better.

    It just seems like there is a great story here but the author does not bring the characters alive to me. I want more dialog not the endless narration of a very repetitive nature.

    Beginning aboard the U.S.S. Olympia, Blood and Iron is the first in a planned series of six books chronicling the adventures of Levi Rankin. Fresh from the wilds of Wyoming, young Marine Corporal Rankin is savagely tested in the Spanish American War (Battle of Manila Bay) while serving under Commodore Dewey. Rankin's courage is rewarded with promotion.

    Overall

    The writing is okay. Quite unremarkable. I think this audio recording may do a tremendous diservice to the book. The voice acting is terrible. It would have been much better if they had just used a single narrator. I found the accents really got on my nerves.
