Disappointed

by Cheryl on Apr 14, 2012

Ordered this book after hearing many good reviews. The book itself was in excellent condition and soon I knew why. While there were many interesting possible story lines with lots of great information, I think the author just tried to put to many facts into each items, leaving me tired of reading a history book with more detail that I could ever care for. Far to fragmented to my taste.
