Book Evaluation #2
4. Erik Larson would be classified as a historian. He brings forth detail in an extravagant bowl. The book describes the fair and construction of the fair so clearly and vividly. He is clearly interested in the city and the fair. Page 13 is chock full of imagery from the beginning all the way to the end as Larson details every little subject. The scene makes you feel like you are standing on the street outside the offices of the Chicago Tribune. By that, it is evident the he has done his fair share of research of what the streets of Chicago felt like in 1890.
