  1. I loved Devil in the White City by Erik Larson, but was disappointed by In The Garden of Beasts and Thunderstruck I seem to have been on a weather disaster kick for a while, so I ordered Isaac s Storm This is one of those books that is so good, you don t want it to end in fact, when I finished it, I started reading it again immediately The research, the intrigue, the drama way better than a novel for me, because this all happened In the two other Erik Larson books I mentioned, it appears he got [...]
