This book came highly recommended by Shane, and I was looking forward to getting into a real page-turner.  It is the true story of the building of the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893, intertwined with the story of a serial killer who used the fair as a lure for many of his victims.  Intriguing…  But the book was often overly factual, so ridden with real-life accounts that I had a hard time really getting into the story.  It was all very interesting, but I’ve mentioned before that I like to really connect with a book’s characters and get lost in the story, and I had a hard time doing that in the midst of so many details and dates.  Nonetheless, it was a good read – I can appreciate the feat that was undertaken by the architects who were given just a couple of years to design and construct this miniature city inside of Chicago.  And knowing that the things you’re reading about truly did happen certainly elevates the intensity of events, so I guess I’m torn.  Fict or fact?
