Good selection but Not entire good.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever (Kindle Edition)
Good selection. I like the selection to cover on Lincoln.
But the writing! Holy smokes! The writing is frighteningly poor. Again, page one, sentence one. "The man with six weeks to live is anxious. He furls his brow,..." Let's stop there, shall we? He furls his brow?! Furls it? Maybe he furrows it, but I doubt that he furls it. A few pages later the authors have Lincoln scarfing his breakfast. Scarfing! Such elegant prose brought a tear to my eye. I plan to read it all, though I know it will be a daunting task. There seem to be countless beautifully written books about Lincoln and the Civil War. I suggest you furl your brow and scarf up some of them, instead.
