Er seems to ave a good grasp on the Easy PayPal with PHP history of Salem I found it a really dry read to the point my attention kept wavering I also found the momentse was describing very confusing times seemed to be switching back forth with not much sense Subject matter 5 starsWriting 2 starsAs a tour guide in Salem I found the stories compelling and interesting bringing detail to the istory I already knew I really enjoyed the accurate information presented throughout The writing owever is poor It seemed the author information presented throughout The writing Holding Hannah (Masters of the Castle, however is poor It seemed the author trying for dramatic effect but I found it very confusing and unnecessary in aistory book Stories were split as the author took tangents with the characters and the main point of the section was sometimes not returned to for several pages Characters were sometimes referred to by last name only which causes problems when there are several members of the same family involved in the narrative I Mithras Court (Ravenloft, had to flip back and forth several times to figure out which person was the subject I would recommend the book but read it section by section rather than chapter by chapter There are too many topics covered in each chapter to find than a cursory theme among them Kind of generous giving it two stars I know the author probably put a lot of work into this My into trivia andistory boss recommended it and it looked pretty cool on the cover but the book was mostly boring filled with anecdotes breaks unconnected pieces of research Her Guardian Knight he found and put into the book It was interesting for a while starting about page 200 where someone was murdered and I guess there wasistorical data about this event which made it a little coherent as a story As a recitation of Disavowed (Star Trek: Section 31) historical facts itad lots of info and if you really wanted to learn about that era in New England you could be interested but in choosing a book to read I wouldn t recommend this one This book wasn t perfect but I would still recommend it to anyone interested in New England The Creative Ordeal history It is one of the only books out there that I know of about Salem sistory that does NOT deal with the witch trials And the witch #Trials Let S Face #let s face are played out They are very interesting and all that but come onSalem A Life Deliberate has centuries ofistory to delve into including a period around 1790 when it was one of the ten biggest cities in the country and fabulously wealthy and sent ships all around the world to places like China and Sumatra and was a major player in global trade You give the country all this great istory and no interest but you ang a few dozen innocent people on witchcraft chargesThis book is all about ow Salem s wealth and power as a port slipped away and it is also about a sensational murder trial of the time period The murder was interesting and all but I sort of wished the author ad spent time on the trade I would Murder, Money Marzipan (Lexy Baker have liked about all the different countries they visited and why they were trading with those places andigh seas adventure and that kind of thing The murder trial lost me after a while But still Worth a read anyway. O its fall from national prominence Death of an Empire is a finely written tale of a little known but remarkably rich era of American istory drawing in characters such as Nathaniel Hawthorne John uincy Adams and Daniel Webst. So completely disappointed by this book The subject matter is to me at least completely fascinating but it s absolutely suandered on some incredibly awkward and just clunky writing Booth somehow managed to find the least graceful way of writing almost every sentence and after the first chapter which closes with indivisible with slavery Indian clearances industrial development and manifest destiny for all which was such a tormented cliche I could barf I just gave up Death of an Empire without a doubt is one of the strangest istorical books I ve ever read Indeed it was a mind blowingly strange read The good news and only the reason it got two stars is that it at its core this book speaks to an under reported and fascinating piece of US How Black Ops Military Stopped Ascension history The saga takes place roughly between the War of 1812 up to circa 1850 when Salem Massachusetts enjoyed a uniue and prosperous place as one of the premier commercial ports in the US There are interesting characters some of whom the reader will recognize and a story involving the US economy developing technology and of courseuman frailty resulting in Satire headline grabbing crime It s almost unimaginableow a story this good and important could be put into print so poorly Which leads me to my final pointsThe bad news I m not exactly sure what went wrong between the author and the editor but the result was orrendous Here are a few examples1 The first thing I noticed was the size of the print about the size of what is commonly seen in footnotes 5 point type I was suinting laboriously I read the 300 pages of the text Then to add insult to the injury to my eyes I also observed that the text was DOUBLE SPACED Isn t the editor or publisher supposed to pick up on these things2 The #Author Is A Local Historian #is a "local istorian I presume ad access to many ships logs and other interesting material from the period Overall "historian I presume ad access to many ships logs and other interesting material from the period Overall unearthed some interesting facts but unfortunately wasn t able to give a uniformly clear overview of the period thus a lot of the stories were missing important information such as general istorical information that must ave been readily available in state or local archives 3 The author s writing was not as clear as is the How to Hire a Champion hallmark of a book of this type Rather than rely on readily understandable simple sentences it appears thate often than not tried to get cute with Unmarriageable his turn of phrase and frankly never uite pulled it off Again where was the editor Thus the writing itself became another distraction when trying to get into and understand an otherwise good and importantistoryMy recommendation If you really want to get a glimpse into this fascinating story put on your reading glasses steel yourself and dive into this book If you just aren t that interested then go find something enjoyable to read Perhaps a four or five star book OK the copy on this jacket grabbed me at the library Reading it after some seafaring melodrama by O Brien and Forester I was fascinated by the detail of commercial shipping from Salem Then when the American.

And global economy sours a conspiracy among old monied family members sours too The true crime story is less compelling than the presentation of global seafaring The particular presentation of Daniel Webster as bought and paid for by the protagonist is particularly compelling An very interesting read but I don t think its effort to weave a multi stranded narrative over decades was truly successful I often found the multiple transitions and short sections in a chapter annoying or confusing this book is great in the fact that it sheds light on a period of new england istory that is both vital and often largely overlooked salem Ishmael has become trivialized by the exploitation of the witch trials of the 17th century but itsistory is far vibrant exciting and important there is much to be learned in these pages about the 19th century shipping industry the beginnings of #the industrial revolution and its impact on commerce #industrial revolution and its impact on commerce society who thrived there and eventually brought their wealth political power and business prowess to boston my disappointment with this book is in the writing itself the author clearly did much research but it seems most of the story is foot noted and is just paraphrasing the documents e found there are uoted paragraphs that go into great detail about attire cuisine and other minutia that drone on and lose the focus of the story throughout there are references to people and events without clarification and for all the aforementioned tiny details many large interesting ones are left unexplained this could ave been a spectacular insight to a magnificent era but alas the writing robs it of its greatness this is still worth reading if you are interested in The Road to Unfreedom history scandal or new england in general This man is a five star teller of anecdotes and a one star writer ofistory First the good the anecdotes are superb Full disclosure I am a Salem native and grew up earing the names of the istorical figures in the book both as people and names of streets etc It might Obsessions (Alpha City have been riveting for someone in my position to read about these people behind the names it sard to determine this I ll certainly never look at the Salem Common in the same way again The bad while the author does ave a central dramatic point to the story it is not revealed until almost page 200 of
