Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand
Hillenbrand has written one of the most consuming, page-turning biographies I have ever read. Non-fiction can be slow for me, but Hillenbrand's writing is smooth, fast-paced, and entertaining. To put it bluntly, it reads like fiction. She has clearly done her research and has seamlessly woven it into a beautiful narrative.
The best way to approach this book is to know next to nothing about the characters or this particular piece of history, but even if you do know Seabiscuit's story, reading it in Hillenbrand's words will be a treat.
5 of 5 stars
