At Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader, you share the first line, and a few thoughts about the book.
Here's the beginning of the book I'm featuring today.
"In the first full-length biography of Alexander Hamilton in decades, Ron Chernow tells the riveting story of a man who overcame all odds to shape, inspire, and scandalize the newborn America. According to historian Joseph Ellis, Alexander Hamilton is 'a robust full-length portrait, in my view the best ever written, of the most brilliant, charismatic and dangerous founder of them all.' "
At Freda's Voice, you'll find the Friday56, where the excerpt comes from page 56 or 56% in your Kindle.
I'm listening to this on Audible, which is great - the narration is excellent, but it's a whopping 35 hours and 58 minutes. I got quite a lot done this week, but still I've got part 5 5 to go. It's a fascinating history of the founding fathers, and is very useful in understanding a little of American politics and how the system works.
