    "I really enjoyed the author's writing, though I think he may have been a bit too sympathetic to some of the historical figures involved. I know in order to make a novel interesting one must almost treat these figures as characters, but it's important to remember they aren't."

    "Aaron Burr is most prominently known as a founding father on the US constitution and this book goes over his tumultuous lifestyles and tragedies. A biography of sorts, the book skims over the details of the more interesting set pieces, such as his vice presidency, revolutionary war combatant, his duel with the Alexander Hamilton, and decides to instead favor his relationship with his daughter, whom he loves dearly. In that sense it does a decent job of humanizing this caricature of historical importance."
