I stopped reading this book at page 153 (of 651). Parts were interesting, but it was SO DETAILED, almost to the point of street addresses. That made it very tedious in places. And when it got to details of battles in the Revolutionary War, I decided to put the 3-DVD HBO movie series on my Netflix queue instead of finishing the book (I've never been good with battle scenes).
I did read enough to learn that John Adams was a remarkable man who was very instrumental in our independence from Great Britain. And his wife, Abigail, was just as remarkable a woman. They were completely devoted to each other. Both were very intelligent, well read, and well educated. I would really like to learn more about them, so I hope the movie version is good.
