    Oh boy... I wish I'd liked this one more than I did. Granted, the last part was really enjoyable (and in general I'm always a slut for reading about Lafayette). Still, I guess I was looking for something similar to my experience with Adopted Son, and this was definitely very different from that. But apart from that, it was simply a flawed book. First, the editing work was kind of lazy, and the way the whole story came together lacked the soul I did find in Adopted Son. It was too much like spitt Oh boy...

First, the editing work was kind of lazy, and the way the whole story came together lacked the soul I did find in Adopted Son. It was too much like spitting facts and devoid of the humanity, the emotions that could have connected the reader with the story. Another thing that bothered me: YES, I do understand that this is a short piece, and that its main focus was on Lafayette's last visit to America. But if you wanted to delve into that story, it would have been better to have a full account on that topic alone and leave everything else out, instead of including other major stages of Lafayette's life but glossing everything over like every step of the way wasn't crucial in the process that leads to the main event. I do admit that, while I cannot say the same for the first 70% or so of the story, the last part was indeed very well executed. I intended to comment on something else, but I'm afraid I forgot so that's it for now.

    Great book. I learned many things that were not taught in my history classes. Very good descriptions of the receptions that General Lafayette attended on his travels.
