City of Scoundrels: The 12 Days of Disaster That Gave Birth to Modern Chicago

City of Scoundrels: The 12 Days of Disaster That Gave Birth to Modern Chicago - Gary Krist I won this book on a goodreads giveaway, and I have received no compensation for the following review.

The first few pages brought me in, but then the book wasn't what I hoped it would be. I knew it was about a series of events over a tumultuous year in Chicago history but I didn't know it wasn't going to have a story to go with it. Instead, it reads like a history book. If you are interested in Chicago, then this may be for you, otherwise, don't read it. There are so many citations you feel as if you spend your entire time flipping back to the reference pages. I bet this is even more frustrating on an eReader.
