I finished Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow....Finally

I started the book in June of 2016 and finally finished it March of 2017.  Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow was a fascinating book about one of America's most influential founding fathers.  In fact so influential that many of his ideas, concepts, and creations are still impacting our daily lives in 2017.  I have to admit I probably wouldn't have read this book if it wasn't for all the hype surrounding the Broadway Musical Hamilton.  The book was fascinating and so in depth that I can barely go into it in a blog but wow, it was amazing.  Chernow's style is very easy to read and understand.  The book is not for everyone and it is very long.  800 or so pages.  I'm just glad I finally finished it and I'm looking forward to seeing the musical at some point.  Now onto my next read.
