I have read Larson's book twice. Each time I am amazed at how he grabs me in the first chapter and I cannot put the book down until I am done. It is a fascinating epic history.

Great book
May 23rd, 2013
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.
