Book #15: 1776

1776 1776 by David McCullough

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
I will never again to attempt to listen to a narrative history book on long car trips. It just didn't work.

I think some of McCullough's greatness must have been lost in the edit of this book, which I've always heard great things about. I have a feeling I might like his other books that focus on individual characters much better. Maybe it was because I hadn't recently studied revolutionary history or because I was distracted by, you know, driving, but I found it hard to keep all of the players in this book straight.

I'm adding this to my "I probably should re-read this at another time" pile.
