This book is going to lead people astry. There are a few germs of truth in it, but over all the story is silly and predictable despite the fact this was about a real person. I was disapointed by most of it. The ending was silly and unexplaned. The way it is written somehow leads me to think there might be sequel. Oh no.
An excelent accout of Rhodes service during the Civil War. So many details and stories. It is a must read for an history buff. I am reading as it happened 150 years ago. It makes it even more intresting.
This book gave a broad overview of historic sites in the US. Through American history. A few I had never heard of, but others were in others. It would have been better if it had cover more ground per say.
This lady is something else! From the time she was born to the present day she has issues. Yes she has done many good works, I jus tfeel like something is missing from her. The book was interesting. I have never seen a movie of hers, but I might now.
After reading this book in school, I felt as though I was being fed propaganda. Her story is compelling, but as time proved parts were left out. I do not deny the holocaust for a moment, but it was not all Jews. Many Chrisitians died as well.
I enjoyed this book very much. You get a sense of what these folks go through to put on a show for us. Some of the stories were very funny. I'm glad that there is a second book written in the same style.
This is an interesting look at the Excutive mansion in Illinois. The book came out in 2003. As a result the last two governors (who have barley even lived in it.) are not covered. It has some nice paintings. Part of it might be called self-serving It shows what a wonderful couple George & Laura Lynn Ryan were.
In the Shatneruniverse Kirk comes back again to fight a plague. It also has Spock and Kirk in Vulcan prison cell which is a holodeck. They find a unique way to escape. One of my favorite lines from Kirk is when he first encounters the Enterprise E. "Can't they come up with a different name."
