Recently, I have been reading a book in class known by the title of Devil in the White City, which encompasses the construction of the World Columbian Exposition and the murder sprees of the serial killer, H. H Holmes. I recommend this book because of the imagery with which Erik Larson captures Holmes. You feel terrified when victims fall prey to Holmes’s devilish and attractive nature, because unbeknownst to them, he is not the man he seems to be.
Dr. Holmes’s house of horrors feels like fiction, yet it was entirely true. Most of this book revolves around the fair which ties into Holmes because it was a great source to choose victims from. I highly suggest to read this book if you are fond of thrills and emotional roller coasters.
