Book Review of Assassination Vacation

Assassination Vacation
reviewed on
Helpful Score: 5


I'm not usually big on travel books or on history, but Sarah Vowell's record of her pilgrimage to sites related to early US presidential assassinations has been one of the best books I've read this year. She has a very dry and sarcastic humor that actually comes through the page and without feeling patronizing. She actually makes me want to take a tour of DC to see all these places she's talking about.
