Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell
Assassination Vacation

reader in sunnyvale, October 11, 2011

I read this book on a recent business trip. Her easy, chatty style made this the perfect ready for airports and hotel rooms - I could put it down for awhile and then step right back into it. The book covers what could be a very somber and depressing topic in a light,easy to read manner. The author takes a different point of view and we follow the actions of the perpetrators as opposed to the victims. The book also contains many obscure pieces of trivia about the different assassinations - I'm a fan of trivia and so I enjoyed learning these tidbits.
