Total waste of time
- Robert I. Boles
Historical facts presented in super clear manner.
What made all these characters tick, their background and thought processes. Well, many were resigned to a poor existence during a really tough economic time in our nations history. Growing up then, was surely not easy!
They were all bigger than life, and it is hard to pick any particular one as a favorite. I suppose Baby Face Nelson was favorite, since the book was leaning more to his story, in detail, than of the other mobsters.
The opening, I thought it was a movie, and it was, in my head.
It just made me feel sorry for lives that were wasted, not just by the criminals, but their victims too. They deserved better in life than to be wasted by some cheap small time hood that didn't have a moral fiber in their entire being.
I would recommend this book it is well narrated and presented. I would like to see more of this type of books in the future at Audible.
