Read my full review @ http://bit.ly/V5i9vD My opinion: What a dynamic read. First off, I am a Lincoln fanatic so I loved how this book continued the storyline and gave a realistic new twist to what the facts are. Second, I LOVE books which allow me to learn new things. I found myself googling incidents and people to learn more which then even made the storyline *POP* even more. Normally, I can't stand books that I call "Rock and Roll Heaven" books. These are books like the famous Righteous Brothers songs that throw in all the famous people from a period of time. This one worked for me though. It didn't seem like the author misused the people who he brought into the storyline just to "add names".
