A review by ktxx22
The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson


....when your video review before edits is over a minute 30 long..... I had a LOT to say. I feel like there was a lot of potential to tell either the story of HH Holmes, and or the Story of the Chicago Worlds Fair.... but to tell them in tandem, because they just so happened to occur at the same time in the same place is NOT enough for me. Both sides of this nonfiction book deserved more attention. I’ve read quite a few nonfiction books this year that handle 1 person or 1 event with detailed expertise. This book for me was lacking. Only giving it 2/5 and if you’d like a recommendation for an excellent, well detailed nonfiction book, Destiny of the Republic by Candice Millard comes highly recommended. I will patiently be waiting for the H. H. Holmes book we need as a Serial Killer fan/community. This book is not that book.
