Book Review: No Ordinary Time

No Ordinary TimeNo Ordinary Time: Franklin & Eleanor Roosevelt: The Home Front in World War II by Doris Kearns Goodwin

Review: Okay, bad news first. This book is LOOOONG. I felt every bit of the 636 pages of body text. However, the good news is the length makes this book chock-full of goodies about two of the most influential and interesting people of the 20th century. It is extremely well-researched and well-written. Arranged chronologically from 1940-1945, this book touches on all aspects of American life during the war. I can see why Ms. Kearns won a Pulitzer Prize for this effort. So if you can get on board for 600+ pages about Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt and World War II, I recommend this book.
