Jefferson - architect of American liberty

Author: John Boles
Stars: 1
Review by:  MApgar

Sign 1 of a potentially bad book - it has really large print. In a biography that means that it has little to say or has no idea how or what to interpret, which is what happened here. I went past the 521 pages of this in about an hour. Yes, I can speed read, but this was deadly dull. And if anyone would bring up a point in Jefferson's life that seemed shady the author did the literary version of heaping teddy bears and unicorns on the problem. Sally Hemmings? Oh Lord, he was all over the map with her. Didn't seem to have a focus. Thank God this was over so fast.
