I wanted something to read, so I brought this with me It was long enough to last a week, and was an actual book, so it wouldn t be a big deal if it got wet or sandy or vacationed on.I started it on the airplane before we took off, and read it for almost 6 straight hours Then, I read it about 100 pages per day until I finished it this afternoon Total days reading it Five or six.All I knew going

every word and every page and every single thing about it I am so glad I read it, and wish I could read it all over again for the first time.Pick up a copy I strongly recommend the dead tree version

appearance throughout the book including, The Marx Brothers, Houdini and Philo Farnsworth the inventor of TV.Like any good illusionist worth his salt, Gold is expert at misdirecting the reader with literary sleight of hand Seeming unrelated and unremarkable doings are used as diversions only to be of consequence later in the book.Bonus How to make an elephant disappear Revealed Aside from the pulpy, dashing, derring do, what made this an interesting read were the I wish I had said written that passage and Gold s talent to take an extraordinary story and build it with relatable, ordinary moments Recommended for historical fiction fans or anyone interested in literary wizardry A Conversation I had earlier,Friend So what are you reading Me Carter Beats The Devil, it s about a master magician battling a shadowy conglomerate of the government, corporations, and secret societies to find the truth about president Harding s death with the help of his pet lion Friend There s no part of
