I always thought it would be impossible to make the life of Andrew Jackson boring and sluggish, but Mr. Byrd has succeeded. This book is a misguided, boring mess with plastic characters and predictable plot twists. Mr. Byrd is a very talented writer who should have dedicated his efforts to writing a book about Jackson, rather than writing a book about someone who's writing a book about Jackson. There were a couple of great moments in the book, particularly when we read Jackson's own thoughts, but as a reader, I felt too removed from the story to feel connected to it. In short, Mr. Byrd let his plot get in the way of telling a wonderful story. I hope his book on Grant is better.
