An interview.

The Devil in the White City never really clicked for me--it was two parallel stories that never really merged for me. In The Garden of the Beasts on the other hand was hard to put down. :)

I haven't read any of his others--but, maybe, some day....

I liked Isaac's Storm quite a bit, and I'd recommend checking it out. Larson wove modern scientific views on natural disasters into the Galveston hurricane narrative quite well, I think.

Thanks for the inteview link. Larson's books work great for me as audiobooks for my commmute--perfect for 30-45 minute increments. Hampton Sides is another nonfiction writer who works well for me in this regard also.
