Well-written History Lesson
Thomas Mallon’s Watergate: A Novel is an excellent history lesson. Having lived through that time it was very interesting to review the events of Watergate and Nixon’s resignation in one concise book. The book is very well written and brought so much back. Despite being fictional in aspects, the main history lesson is there and very well done. I felt it kept my interest but that may be because I knew the characters and the general story. Younger folks may have a tougher time with it but it’s definitely worth reading if you’re interested in getting the facts.
