Not the Great American Novel...
Although the author captured my interest enough to continue reading the novel, I felt as though the story was really long and drawn-out. Read it if you want a mediocre read to aid your sleep.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Slotkin's book gives us Lincoln as he seems to have really been--down to earth, subject to any of the emotions and longings that any other human being is, and filled by an ambition that is just beginning to heat up in the back of his mind. This book is extremely well written and descriptive; it makes you feel as though you know Lincoln personally. Being a Lincoln fan myself, I was overjoyed when I picked up this book and could not put it down. I suggest to Mr. Slotkin that he continue in his Lincoln writings--give us a 'part 2' and 'part 3' perhaps, that leads us into his Sprinfield and White House days? That would be worth waiting for!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
