In the Garden of Beasts was another disappointing read. A diplomat's family in Berlin during the rise of the Nazi's - should be full of suspense and intrigue. Sadly the book needed a ton more edits. I usually can't put down one of Larson's books, but this time, it was a slog of a read. 3/10.
Another aggravation was that I did not manage to finish this in 2012. I love a clean reading slate with a new year but this one would not be finished in time - I kept falling asleep.
