A fascinating read
on 24 April 2017
Thankyou Amazon for recommending this book.
I found it fascinating. Holmes' story is certainly worth telling, but it was the story of the World's Fair that was the more absorbing of the narratives.
The details of committee meetings, labour disputes and even storm damage were deftly handled, and the characters brought vividly to life.
I found Holmes' story was almost in the background, and I feel this made for a better book than it might have been.
