At almost four hours in I just cannot go on. I keep waiting for this book to be about Roosevelt or the holocaust, but . . .
Biographies are my favorite reading, and it's not disinteresting to hear about this historian's childhood, prep school and college education, his war experiences in the UK, and Truman's decision to use the bomb in Japan. But I feel like I'm playing hookie instead of making it to class, or that I'm filling up on ginger snaps when I know I need big protein.
Perhaps I've developed attention deficit, but I'd prefer to be closer to what I thought/hoped would be the subject of this otherwise charming, affable listen.
