    "I really wanted to like this book, but I just could not get immersed in the biography. I had trouble relating to Huey Long and I just was not entertained. It was a relief to finish the book and unfortunately I can not recommend it. :("

    "This book is definitely worth reading if you are a US history buff like I am. This book delves on the history of Louisiana in early century US, specifically on impact the governor Huey P. Long had on the state of Louisiana. The author writes a compelling and factual story, It felt like no other non-fiction books I have read. Definitely one of the best books worth reading if you enjoy non-fiction, more so if you want to learn more about Louisiana."

    "This seems like a pretty good read. this story is about the South's most insidiously oppressive labor systems in American history/ The master-slave relationship in Louisiana's antebellum sugarcane country is a part of history that we should all know a bit about. This shows how far we have come in the past 140 years. "
