I'm surprised you didn't like The Devil... book. It's actually two books in one, the 1893 Chicago Worlds Fair and the serial killer H.H. Holmes and how they overlap. I really enjoyed the book.

Devil in the White City-Excellent Read

Post Number:#18  Postby YellowButterfly85 » 04 Sep 2010, 02:06

I was recommended Devil in the White City by a friend several years ago. The history about Chicago's World's Fair could get kind of boring, but most of the book was excellent. It was hard to believe that the author was writing about occurrences that had really happened.

Loved this book! I'm not one for period pieces in general, but I really enjoyed the two interwoven stories. I heard a movie of the book should be coming out next year (possibly in the spring). Can't wait.

I loved this book. It is what got me started reading Larson's stuff. It's a great example of narrative nonfiction. It tells a true story in such a way that it reads like a novel. I also like that Larson's books focus on lesser-known historical events and people in large part. I have recommended this book a lot of my friends because I enjoyed it so much. I think it's his best book so far, though I really liked Isaac's Storm.

The Devil in the White City is a great book that has a lot of historical value but reads like an awesome mystery thriller(at lest for the majority).
