However the author's far leftist political views pop constantly throughout every chapter thus making this book more of a vehicle for her agenda than a interesting and provocative read. I suggest this book, however be forewarned of the political nonsense that is interwoven in what is otherwise a thoroughly enjoyable book.

    For the true history buffs only

    I am a fan of historical fiction, I love politics and history, but I had a really hard time even liking this book a little bit. I would recommend it only to those who really, really love learning about historical events and places.

    Political commentaries ruined it!

    Sarah Vowell has a witty and interesting writing style, but her too frequent liberal commentary distracted from the book. This book could have been funny, interesting, and informative look on political assassinations. Her jabs at Bush, Reagan, and the Republican party were mean spirited and poorly timed.
