Joseph wheelan's Jefferson's Vendetta, as I found through a thorough historical analysis of its accuracy, is very factual. Somehow, however, Wheelan presents true history down to the smallest details, in such a way that I, for one, forgot for a moment that I was reading nonfiction. Even through all of the hard legal chapters of the trial, Wheelan keeps the reader's attention through his personification of historical figures. He conveys all of the character's feelings so intensely that readers do not feel as though these are the heroes and villains of the past, but rather either close friends or bitter enemies of themselves. Packed with quotes that blend in so well with the rest of the words that they almost go unnoticed, Jefferson's Vendetta is a brilliant book which showcases Joseph Wheelan's obvious ability to walk the fine line between dry factual history and entertaining fiction, pulling the best from each. I recommend this book to any person of any age who wants to learn but not have facts forced upon them. It's a true pleasure to read, and, as with any good book, leaves the reader with more than they started with.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
