Once I saw we were reading DITWC in this class, I became excited all over again. I breezed through the book again (although I did not read the final chapters this time), but I found that instead of focusing on Holmes as I had previously done, I was instead focusing on Burnham and his mission towards creating the greatest architectural wonder in the world at that time. I became bored with Holmes, sometimes skimming his sections instead of reading them, and focused on every little detail about the construction of the fair. Again, I did not focus on Larson's style of writing. At times I would note that Larson should have omitted certain lines, but, overall, I thought he did a tremendous job creating a story with the immense pile of research he had to do.
All in all, I thought Devil in the White City was a good read. One which I could read a couple more times just to capture details I had missed the first two times.
