This book is fantastic I'm learning a lot about the founding history of the United States I didn't know and hadn't considered. Joe's long drawnout writing style is very sleep inducing so it is making great bedtime reading I can seldom read more than one page before I am sound asleep. Most educational way to get to sleep I've ever found.
I had to push myself to finish this book. I felt like the author took pains to develop support for his conclusions, sometimes at the expense of readability. Still, I am glad I stuck with the task. It ended up as a good review of key players in our nation's infancy.
A lively perspective to learn history's complexity, with the least bias. An ingenious way to weave "brothers" experience, words, actions and relationships into a book full of serious subjects, and still offer a delightful read.
Ellis writes interpretive history, not biography or narrative history, but his passive voice and turgid prose mask conclusions that are quite ordinary. I started this book but could not finish it, just like I started and could not finish two of his previous books, "American Sphinx and "Passionate Sage". I think that Ellis is overrated.
Character matters, and how important it was in the founding of our country. Don't miss this Pulitzer-Prize winner.
