Conhecimento Comum



I enjoyed it but it wasn't anywhere as good as her previous books. Missing lot of her off beat humor that I have come to love.

I love sarah vowel, but this book didn't have the scope I expected.

Vowel's smart, engaging, funny book [b:Assassination Vacation|422664|Assassination Vacation|Sarah Vowell|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1174601492s/422664.jpg|824686](audio) made the miles melt away as I drove to grad classes. I chose this title as a birthday gift when my sister-in-law said a) she loves words and b) history interests her. Seems a perfect match. I'm reading it first just to be sure of what I'm giving.

So far so good. A clever essayist and engaging reader, Vowel manages to cram heaps of historical facts and humor into her well researched travelogue of presidential assassins' and their marks.
