|I am both amused and confused by the current discussion here. I've read 'Blood on the Moon' and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have not read 'Manhunt' or 'American Brutus.' Yet.
So I went on the Barnes & Noble site to at least get a feel for what I might be missing.
I noticed that the back cover of 'Manhunt' has positive recommendations by Doris Kearns Goodwin, James McPherson, John Hope Franklin and Jay Winik, all highly regarded historians. Have they been hoodwinked, or worse yet, paid off? (I shudder to think).
New York Times reviewer Janet Maslin had praise for both 'Manhunt' and 'American Brutus.'
Some of the reader reviews for 'Manhunt' liked 'American Brutus' as well, thought they worked well in conjunction with each other.
I guess I'm just amazed at the wide range of views on 'Manhunt.' To each, his own, I suppose. Maybe a trip to the library is in store for me, or better yet, maybe I can borrow the book from a friend. Maybe lose it for him, too, LOL.
