    A Great Biography

    This book was a biography about Pope John Paul II. It included many interesting facts about the pope. Some of the information in the book is that his name before becoming pope was Karol Wojtyla. He was born on Tuesday, May 18, 1920. He was born in the town of Wadowice, in Poland. His whole family died by the time he was 22. He became pope on October 16, 1978. One thing that I like about Tad Szulc¿s biography is that he gives a great background of the most famous man in the Catholic Church. Most of the things Szulc discusses in the biography I never knew about. The book takes the reader through Karol Wojtyla¿s life from his birth until now. It shows how the pope had an incredibly difficult life. Another thing about the book that I like is that it shows how the pope¿s past experiences and upbringing affect the man he is today. The book doesn¿t just throw out facts it also show¿s how Karol Wojtyla¿s past experiences have shaped his opinions and attitudes, and characteristics. What I didn¿t like about the book was that it was full of positive comments about the pope, but no criticism. Even though I agree with the author about what a great man the pope is, to others it may appear that Szulk ignored any negative information about the pope. I realize that he was a very moral and respectable person growing up, but everyone does at least one minor thing wrong during their upbringing, like being mischievous or causing trouble. The book does not mention anything that Wojtyla has ever done wrong. It makes him seem like he is without sin. Despite some minor complaints about the book, I think it was an excellent biography.
