Ewig ist die Liebe. Mary und Abraham Lincoln, ihr Leben, ihre Liebe und ihre Zeit. Reviews
Bisher haben mir alle von Irving Stone geschriebene und recherchierte Biographien sehr gut gefallen. Empfehlenswert für alle die, die sich an so lebendig geschriebenen Lebenseschriebungen erfreuen.
This is a great read. Filled with terrific accounts of historical events. Mary Todd has had an unfair rap in history, in my opinion. What the woman endured was incredible. I finished this book with a completely different view of Lincoln than the history books left for us. He was an extraordinarily complicated man who had trouble making decisions. Perhaps, as politician he was a genius but I found him to be a depressed and isolated man. Possibly conflicted with his sexual orientation.This is a terrific read regarding their marriage and personal life as he battled with the many problems of the presidency during the civil war. I left this book feeling great compassion for Mary Todd Lincoln, who had a sad life. I highly recommend this well written account of the complicated life they endured in the White House.
I am glad that I read this book. I learned alot about Abraham Lincoln and his wife. The author did a wonderful job. It was very accurate and enlightening. I didn't enjoy it because I felt that she was selfish, and he was depressed. I would not to have wanted to be friends with either of them personally, but I am grateful for what they as a couple did for the United States and slavery. The book was expertly written. Worth reading for educational purposes
This is a great read. Very interesting about the struggles of the President and his wife. A great history of their life together and the struggles they had in the White House and Wash. DC during the civil war, how their families were affected and the impact it had on their children. It was hard to put down once I started it. I found it very educational as I am not a history buff and knew very little about the Civil War period.
I'm a big H. Rider Haggard fan. This book ranks up there with one of his best in my opinion. It is a sad story, but I couldn't stop reading.
Irving Stone's books are always fun to read. They are engaging and informative. This one is especially so because it shed such light on Mary Todd Lincoln's and Abraham Lincoln's personalities and their foibles. I have never understood the Civil War from his angle, and I never knew what complex people they were. I would highly recommend this book for any one interested in this period of history.
