    Great book

    Hooks the reader from the first chapter. Descriptions of the fair make one feel as if they have been there. An excellent non-fiction book. More about the capture of Holmes and his attempts to build a new castle in ft worth would have been nice but Larson made me go to wiki for more info about Holmes. All and all an excellent read.

    Fascinating and terrifying

    Fascinating look at how opulence and technological advancements blind us to our most horrific capabilities.

    A great way to read history.

    Well written. Enjoyable read. Horrific character. But history, about what man is capable of.
