The GreatTrain Robbery
I just finished reading the critically acclaimed Crichton novel, the Great Train Robbery. To say the least, it was an entertaining book. I did have a problem with it, though. A lot of the information that was given in the book was completely pointless. Now there were times that some of the facts that were given in the story were very interesting and I liked learning, but when there is four pages on how people during that time felt about being buried alive, I feel that it is unneccesary. I think that a lot if the information given could be taken out and the book would be just as good, if not better. Maybe it was all just for filler. Maybe otherwise it would be too short, whatever the reason I didn't think it was worth it.
