    Frank Lloyd Wright

    This book is a biography of the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright. It tells about all his accomplishments and goals he achieved while living his 92 years on this earth. Not only a great architect but also an author, lecturer, and Japanese art trader. Wright was a big promoter of organic architecture. Some of his most famous works: The Imperial Hotel (Tokyo, Japan), "Falling Water" (Pennsylvania). A strong message this book shares is to stick with your plan. Do what you think is the right way and stay with your beliefs. I liked that Wright was able to come up with such intricate designs and had such a vivid imagination that he was able to make true. It is also a very easy and fast book to read. I did not like how it would occasionally stray off topic for a little while. People should read this book because even for a biography it is pretty interesting to learn about Wright and learn about what he did for architecture as a whole and how much he improved it. With out some of his concepts and terms some modern homes today would not be as luxurious as they are now. Overall this was a good solid reading.

    A good book

    The story tells us the life of Frank Lyyod Wright but by the end of it Im not sure any of us get a feeling for his life at all. First off, let me say the book is well written. I have no complaints there. The story is told beautifully with a plot that always keeps the reader wanting to read more. Also, the writer himself seems to have a good understanding of architecture and is able to explain it in a way that the reader can understand. I also enjoy the writers poetic lines about Frank Lyyod Wright and how he is able to get into the architects head. So saying that the biggest problem is the writers dislike of Frank Lyyod Wright. It really draws me back from this book and makes me wonder why anyone would write a book about someone they apparently cannot stand. I really would have preferred if the writer had not placed his own oppinions in the story and let us make up our own minds about him. Thats not to say that I disagree with the writer. After reading this book I have gained a lesser respect for Frank Lyyod Wright. Still I really would have preferred to have come to that realization myself instead of having it shoved into my face. Anyways that is my biggest problem with this book and why I have only given it an average review. That and because for some reason I feel a bit unimpressed by the writer after reading this book. At any rate it is a pretty enjoyable read and will give the reader a deep love for the art of architecture.
