The March; E.L. Doctorow

The March: A Novel The March: A Novel by E.L. Doctorow
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Doctorow certainly knows his sweeping saga genre! This historical fiction book couldn't be more packed with examples of different types of soldiers, Southerners, slaves and others - which is both good and bad. The breadth of types became tedious at times and often I wished for fewer characters to track. Still, the portrait he paints of Sherman's march through the South is vivid and interesting and makes for a good read.
