Journal Entry 2 by wingSecretariatwing at Carlsbad, California USA on Monday, August 27, 2012

9 out of 10

Now I understand why this book is on so many of the 'best of' lists. It's terrific.

Doctorow gives his reader a wonderful tour of the major U.S./Mexico historical events at the turn of the 20th century, all while creating fabulous, unforgettable characters. Along the way we meet Houdini, Peary, Goldman, Zapata, Ford, J. P. Morgan, Villa, and others, some of whom we admire/like and some we don't. Each of his characters is rich, often gravely flawed, but always interesting. Do yourself an immense favor, read this book.
