The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America - Erik Larson I'm not the type of person that LOVES non-fiction. I enjoy them but don't LOVE them. However, The Devil in the White City is different. I seriously loved every minute of this book and was sad that I had to finish it.

Larson is a true master at his craft. He has weaved the stories of Daniel Burnham and H.H. Holmes in such a fascinating way! He tells the awe-inspiring story of the Chicago World's Fair and the importance the fair had on architecture, landscape architecture, engineering, and building moral of a country on the brink of an economic disaster. Additionally, it tells a horrific story of unspeakable evil that's hard to believe ever happened.
