Fallen Founder By: Nancy Isenberg

It is no secret, at least to most that Burr got a raw deal from authors and historians.  He is best knows for killing Alexander Hamilton in a duel.  Alexander Hamilton was Burr's nemesis did everything he could to instigate and castigate Burr at every turn.   

The book is well written but it did not engage me.  Was not a page-turner and was difficult to finish.  I am aware that history books are rarely a page-turner, but this was difficult to get through.  I do though.

Not much to say about the book except that I am glad I finished it.  It was not what I was looking for, but that is my own fault.  I am sure there are many who will enjoy it.
