Why did I love this book?
This is frankly, one of the scariest books I’ve ever read, intertwining the true story of a fiendish serial killer with that of the creation of the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair where the killer operated. Erik Larson is a master at weaving historical details into page-turning narratives and I consciously studied his technique when it came to writing my own book. You might not think you’ll care that much about the Chicago World’s Fair but trust me, you’ll need a break from the other chapters about the monstrous H.H.Holmes and his crimes. Leave a light on when you read this one.
