Pages 800-899 and Chapters 110-120
Here is what I thought:
This section starts off with the family discussing Abraham Lincoln being elected president. I thought that since last week's section was an excellent read, that it would continue until the end of the book. Even though it was a readable and enjoyable section, I believe that because he only had 100 pages to put over a 100 years of the remaining family history, I feel that the last 100 was a rushed overview of what occurred.
It was a present surprise to find that he used the last 100 pages for "Roots: The Next Generation". I am just upset that the section was not as versed as all the other sections.
Nevertheless I really enjoyed this book and it is bittersweet that the read-along is over. Now I just need to figure out what book I would read next summer...
How did you enjoy the read-along?
