A Great History Lesson!
What an amazing story of two great men who had so much in their life to offer. One respected, one not. Both powerful. One greedy. Both intellegent. Two men, one duel, one dead.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The Duel by Judith St. George brings history life. It brought us through Aaron Burr's and Alexander Hamilton's life. This page turning book ranges from their child life and an exciting conspiracy to set up a new country that was led by Aaron Burr. By the end of the book one man will be dead and the other on the run because of a fatal duel between the two. What made this book so good was that you felt that you were in Hamilton's and Burr's shoes.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

She also does a good job of transitioning from Burr's life to Hamilton's life; other times when I have read books like that it was often confusing and hard to follow. Overall this was a very good book, but the only negative thing about this book was the length. I believe that this book will appeal to readers of all ages. Others books that Judith St. George has also written other historical books, like Crazy Horse and The White House. I would rate this book a 4 out of 5.
