I think it could have been a great book if it had been edited down to 1/2 the length. Many of the most important themes are repeated many times. But it is an excellent reminder of how corrupt and exploitive the period was. We tend to think of it as a romantic time. It was pretty ruthless.

Took me a long time to read for a short book. Kept going over passages and revisiting pages.
