Lol. In high school I liked writing stories and stuff but this scientific stuff I had to write was so BORING. I didn't like that. Oh well...it's over. Luckily my boyfriend has done many like that so he helped me a lot! :) Good luck!! What books??
"All the President's Men"
Which wasn't bad, considering I loved the movie.
"Breach of Faith: The Fall of Richard Nixon"
That one was a real sleeper. Take a look at one of the sentences I wrote for it... oh, and I only got through thirteen pages. : D Breach of Faith successfully managed to detail the happenings of Watergate, sounding like a mix between a textbook writer and a journalist. The only thing that may be a major downfall for the novel is when those who are not historians pick it up, they may find themselves turned off by the two-minutes a page read, and may find it hard to keep going when the writing gets less exciting and more monotonous.
I fell asleep twice on the same page, so after that I quit and read a summary online. I love Watergate, but I possibly chose THE worst book out there.
