    Not interested

    I tried but I just couldn't finish. I found it really hard to stay attentive.

    Learn Something New

    Lehrer has done quite a bit of research in penning this novel. The story is slow in some places because he really doesn't do a very good job of developing characters, but the book is still a lot of fun to read, with good historical information and plenty of humor.

    Thoroughly Disappointing

    I expected so much more from Mr. Lehrer. Very little mystery and sleuthing and lame romance. He could have used more historical facts and woven them into the Ben Franklin story. He left one of the main plots totally unresolved (the supposed murder) and the other (plagiarism) neatly swept under the carpet. There is also a lack of personality and relationship development between of all the main characters. This book is a very flat read.
