The Devil in the White City (Historical, #9)

This book is a history lesson about the Chicago World's Fair, the architect behind the project, and a murderer not involved at all. It is Chicago at the turn of the (20th) century, and it is thrilling. I normally don't like nonfiction that is this seemingly bland. However, Larson made it read like a novel, and I finished this nearly 400 page tome in less than five days.

  1. This is another one of those books I have picked up countless times at the bookstore and for some reason have never left with. I really will have to read it now thanks to your review! :)
