      This was one strange book It is a work of historical fiction and probably the most unusual book of that category that I have ever read I am at something of a loss as to how to approach writing a review of this book To start I should note that I am a lifelong resident of the Chicago area and an avid fan of the history of Chicago When I saw this book being offered for review on NetGalley I had to apply for the opportunity to read it I have given this book 3 stars because it is a satisfactory This [...]

      Make me a city 1.5 Chicago intrigued me because thats my home but it fell flat The characters were richly developed a bit too much at times and the city was minuscule in comparison I wasnt a fan of the writing and found it difficult to get through We bounce through so many timelines and so many people that it was hard to follow and even harder to enjoy Thank you so much to Henry and Colt Co via netgalley for sending me an ARC copy of Make me a city by Jonathan Carr This will be released o Make m [...]

      I devoured this sensational debut by Johnathan Carr It sits right at the confluence of history and fiction It s a story of Chicago from it s foundation to 1900 Reading this fantastic tale made me want to drop everything and fly to Chicago I ve followed up by studying some of the people, places and events covered in the book, by way of compliment Note to self write a biography of John Stephen Wright, when you get a spare minute Carr skillfully weaves generations of Chicagoans together to I devour [...]

      This is mischaracterized It is not a novel, but a collection of short stories vignettes, all peripherally rather than fundamentally involved with the city of Chicago The first story starts out with the very beginning of the town and a man named Kinzie, who buys a mansion from a man named Sable.From there we jump some decades, to the story of a woman and a man named Wright, a short portion of whose relationship is depicted The book moves from one vignette to another, often jumping decades, n This [...]

      I received a free copy of Make Me a City from NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review.This lengthy historical fiction reveals the facts behind the founding and growth of the city of Chicago through the 19th century Facts is in quotation marks because the author, through his major narrator writer Prof Milton Winship, uses the term alternative facts quite frequently in his tale The cast of characters is quite lengthy and readers will see them at different stages of their lives and at d [...]

      Note I d like to thank NetGalley, the publisher, and the author for providing me with a free eARC in exchange for an honest review A story about the creation of Chicago as a city where do I sign up I love historical fiction and was quite excited to learn about the characters that founded Chicago In fact, I was hoping for something less gritty in comparison to the true crime I ve been reading that takes place in the city While this story should work, it falls flat in a lot of areas First Note I d [...]
