To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I got this book because I've been obsessed with the Hamilton play. This book helped me learn that the play wasn't based completely on facts(should have seen that coming). But I enjoyed it nonetheless and read it completely in two days. Though I would have enjoyed if the romance was longer. They didn't start having strong feelings until less than half way through the book.
Perfect for fans of Hamilton and for lovers of history and/or the American Revolution. This fictional account of a famous historic couple was fantastic. I loved Eliza and she was the perfect fiery and independent woman that made Alexander fall in love with her. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.
In this turbulent time in America, it's wonderful to read a love story about one of our most lauded founding fathers. Loved every second of being a part of the Revolutionary War, to see the promise of Amera's greatness, which is in peril today.
Melissa de la Cruz has a way with words. I literally can never get enough of what she writes. I devoured this book. I have become a huge Eliza fan but I've always had this weird hang up about Alexander. She made him so completely likable in this book. I cannot wait for more.
I found myself more invested in their relationship than any of my own. I cried when they cried, I smiled when they were happy, I felt nervous when their love was in danger. I've read it a million times and I'll read it a million times more and still feel the tension and the love.
I was told that this book wasn't worth the read from one of my close bookish friends, but I totally think it was. I read this in a couple of days, never wanting to put it down. Melissa does a wonderful job of grabbing you and pulling you into the world of Alexander and Eliza Hamilton. I absolutely loved it.
