The Devil in the White City is a terrific non-fiction book. It is in the incredible story of the 1893 World's Fair held in Chicago and Dr. H. H. Holmes, America's first serial killer. The author, Erik Larson, has written a well researched book that is highly recommended, particularly to those interested in American history. You can read my full review at my blog.


    I loved Devil in the White City. Actually, I've loved everything that Larson has written. You should check out Naked Consumer....I think it is the most frightening book I've ever read.

    i'm going to add this one to my list. thanks for the review!

    This book is popping up everywhere! I even saw it in the Baltimore Art Museum gift shop today. Maybe it's a sign?!

    Kristin - I definitely need to check out some of his other books. I'll keep that one in mind.

    alisonwonderland - You're welcome, I hope you like it!

    nyssaneala - I'm surprised it's still popping up everywhere as it's a few years old already, so it very well could be a sign. :)
