I just finished No Ordinary Time by Doris Kearns Goodwin. It’s super long. However, I went with the abridged version. For one, it’s only 6 hours but for another, it concentrated on the people of the FDR presidency. It’s an intimate look at the marriage of FDR and Eleanor and all of the people that seemed to flood the White House. There were so many people coming and going that some described the White House as a hotel or a boarding house. The Roosevelt’s closest friends would come to visit and then stay for weeks or even years.
The unabridged version tells the story of WWII in Europe and at home. The war strategies, etc. are left out of the abridged version.
It was interesting and I would definitely recommend, especially, if you are interested in history.
