Bu kitap tüm öğrenciler için okunmalıdır. Özgür düşünce ve seçimin önemi hakkında harika bir hikaye.
Okumaya değer! Noktalarda, özellikle daha iyi bir yolun olduğu durumlar ile neler olduğunu okumak sinir bozucuydu. Abbey Johnson kitabın en başında bunu anlatıyor. Eski "başka birinin hayatında bir gözlemci olmak sizi her zaman eleştirir" şeklinde ifade eder. Hikayesini okurken birden çok kez şok olmuştum, düşündüğü düşünceleri düşündü ve aldığı eylemleri yaptı!
I'm re-reading this on, and it is well worth the re-read. A look at the U.S.'s own "Jack the Ripper" and first serial killer H.H. Holmes against the backdrop of the Columbia Exposition (World's Fair) in Chicago. Among the best written and "most balanced" of Erik Larson's books — showing how the technology changes at the turn of the 20th century as represented by the Exposition affected the greater society, and how one serial killer was able to take advantage of it.
There were many occasions throughout this book where I wanted to slap Nevare for his stubbornness and almost willful ignorance; I was sad to see Robin Hobb using the "but the character wouldn't consider X as an option, here, he'll explain why" that many times. That said, I still thought this was a wonderful book, less plagued with timeline issues than the first. At no point did it get so frustrating I stopped reading, and that's a big pet peeve of mine. Still, Nevare doesn't seem to learn from his mistakes, and for some reason it's more annoying here than it was with Fitz in the Farseer/Tawny Man series. Definitely not a reason to skip the series, though.
