A Good Read

A few years ago, my friend J recommended “The Devil in the White City” by Erik Larson.

We were both attending our friend S’s wedding in Chicago, and J mentioned that this book was a true story about the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair and a serial killer operating under theĀ guise of a doctor during that era.

Although I downloaded the book right away (lest I forget), I didn’t get around to starting it until my trip to Chicago earlier this week.

Wow! What a page turner. Although I usually don’t get into true crime or historical non-fiction books, this one is gripping.

Four stars.

P.S. More about the Chicago World’s Fair.
