The Devil in the White City
Erik Larson
The Devil in the White City (2003) takes you to Chicago in the 1890s, when the growing city was the host of the World’s Fair amid a time of social upheaval and serious crime. These blinks blend a story of exciting American innovation with the unspeakable acts of one of the world’s first serial killers.
The good word
“Your 15 minutes spent reading the summary might well be what encourages you to buy the book itself.“
“The summaries are actually pretty great; I checked out a few books I had read against Blinkist's take and they managed to get all the salient details in.“
“It’s about curation and condensing – pure human brainpower and field experts with a passion for explaining complex matters is the name of the game here.“
