Subtitled:Evelyn Nesbit, Stanford White: The Birth of the “It” Girl and the Crime of the Century

Sorry no posts in awhile. I’ve been busy and also slogging my way through this book for book group.

With my use of the word slogging, you probably guessed I didn’t like it. If so, you’re half correct.

It got better after about 110 pages (but since I usually only give a book 100 pages- this would’ve been over on the other “started, not finished” list if not for having to read it for book group.

The topic is interested and I know little to nothing about the turn of the century or of Evelyn Nesbit. But the author used really big words in really long sentences, so it was not easy reading. Plus Nesbit’s life after the trial was given short shrift.

Can’t say I’d recommend it – but it should be an intersting discussion tonight.
