    Truth is stranger than fiction-definitely a must read!

    This was a fabulous book that reads like fiction. Ms Titone does an excellent job of giving the reader a feel for the period. You quickly come to understand the tensions between the Booth brothers in this well researched book.Their lives are played out against the richly described backdrops of Shakespeare's plays, the Booth family's interactions with famous people of the era, as well as the major historical events taking place. There are some interesting twists and coincidences that occur in the lives of these men that make this book very easy to read quickly. I can't wait for Ms. Titone's next book!

    Highly recommend

    Ms Titone should return a/s/a/p to research and scribe another insightful and truly informative book. "Bloody" is superb in all aspects of a history of the Booth family as well as info on the Ford Theatre and the death of Lincoln. Her writing flows throughout the
    entire history and leaves one with the attitude that research and utilization of notes were in abundance. Keep writing and let Ms Goodwin write all of the prefaces.

    I'm glad this book did not focus on the Lincoln assasination. T

    I'm glad this book did not focus on the Lincoln assasination. That subject has been done. I like learning the facts of John Wilkes Booth's roots. Afterall, you learn more about people when you study their families and where they come from. Loved this!

    History at Its Best

    Knowing the background of John Wilkes Booth and his family along with the way things were then really helps flesh out what happened in Ford's Theater and afterwords. I loved this book. Not only did I learn a great deal, I also enjoyed learning it.
