    1. A 3 rating is probably fair. It was very long and very detailed on the life of Lincoln. I already read a couple books on him, so I knew most of the stuff and skipped those setions of it. There were a lot of quotes from him that made the book interesting. He just seemed like such a great person to know and his comments on things are great.


    2. I've classified Lowell's "Abraham Lincoln" as both a biography and a memoir. I've given it four stars: its a fascinating work, but wordiness hindered Lowell's writing; normally I might have given it only two or three stars . Its an important work however because of the ideological formulations Lowell uses to justify Lincoln's actions as president and the Union war effort. For example, Lowell concedes that Lincoln exercised supreme power and hearkened him to something of a Roman dictator or tribu [...]


    3. GoodThis book is a good description of Lincoln as one of the greatest American men of all time. I found it quite enlightening.

    5. The Books is about the time when Abraham Lincoln was the President - war with southern states was continuing and the issue down with slavery was to be incorporated in the Constitution. Lincoln watched the situation carefully and decided at the proper time. The rest is history.


    6. Written back thenInteresting however written back in the day of Lincoln. Many definitions were not in today's dictionary. Still very interesting .


    7. More of an Essay on the person of Lincoln and his suitability to the nation at the time. Great read. Particularly love James's long sentences!


    8. Great book about a great man summarized in a short book. I like it. It is a great introduction to Lincoln. I will have to include some more Lincoln books in my library.
