Brother, Can You Spare a Dime? - Jack Martin

5 stars!  #BrotherCanYouSpareADime  @AmphoraePub

I loved this book! I found it so interesting! Okay some of it was made up, okay a lot of it. But I had read about or seen movies about a lot of them and knew pretty much what was made up and what wasn't. I admit the ending was certainly hokey. But this book definitely kept me interested and entertained. I loved how Agent Bierce had his morals and values and stuck to him especially at a time when there didn't seem to be a lot of that going on. And I especially like what he did for Mrs. Belasco and the orphaned little girl.

I loved the humor in this book as well. It wasn't laugh out loud, but it was good for a few chuckles. Especially when Hoover gave Bierce (I've forgotten his last name) a job to do and he stands there and considers it as if its a recommendation and then after a few minutes he accepts it.

I would definitely recommend this book, however, not to the serious non-fiction lovers. You won't like it. The author took liberties with the facts and made it into an interesting story that was very enjoyable. So don't use any of the facts in this book as your answer if your playing Jeopardy.

Thanks Amphorae Publishing Group and Net Galley for providing me with this free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
