I was bored to death for the first 80 pages, at one time thinking I wouldn't even finish the book.
As always, I learned all kinds of new things about a subject I thought I was well-acquainted with, while reading a book I couldn't put down.
The book is about Marconi and his invention of wireless and about Dr. Crippen who murdered his wife.
Erik Larson does it again. Like his other books that I've read, he makes non-fiction read like the best fiction thriller out there. Read morePublished 22 hours ago by Jackie
Basically a good murder mystery made tedious by too much technical information concerning wireless communication.Published 4 days ago by Philip Michaels
Found that having two storylines going in the same book very bothersome. Both of the stories were, by themselves, good and entertaining. Together they were distracting.Published 7 days ago by Margaret Elgen
really boring Poorly written. The murder part was uneventul. I have read 2 other Larson books that were terrific I find it hard to believe he wrote this. Maybe he needed the moneyPublished 7 days ago by lois feller
