This book was difficult to follow, and the story was uninteresting. The title of each chapter was a character's name and it was difficult to follow. Many times the text was written in first person and it was hard to remember who the book was talking about. "Paradise Alley" is well-researched and provides a great history lesson as well as a througoughly fascinating read. With engaging characters coming together for a stirring climactic scene."Paradise Alley" does a brilliant job at looking how people react to extreme circumstances, the good the bad and the ugly.5/5(5).
