Book review: Dead Wake by Erik Larson

 

I've been a big fan of Erik Larson ever since I read his best-seller Devil in the White City. I was living in Chicago at the time and I loved reading about a story from the city I was enjoying so much. Yes, it was a little creepy, but it was also history, so... I stuck with it and really enjoyed it! :)

I was really excited to see that he had a new book out, this time about the sinking of the Lusitania. 

The thing I love about all Erik's books is that he takes stories we might read about briefly in history books, researches them thoroughly and then writes about them. And his books read like novels. They're so hard to put down! 

This one is no exception! 

Highly recommend to anyone who likes reading history, or even mystery or suspense novels. Erik Larson's books read like fast-paced fiction. They're a ton of fun!

I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
