Book Review: “Hamilton” by Ron Chernow

I don’t want to go into too much detail here, don’t want to spoil it for you (haha it’s history! Can’t be spoiled.) This book was 731 pages long in Kindle form and it sure felt like it. It took me two and a half months to read it but man, was it the most thorough and extensive biography! I was inspired to read it when I saw the Broadway play, Hamilton, on Disney+ and I am so glad I decided to compare to the book because it was interesting. The author uses some really great words which translated well into the musical and these have become my favorite part of both. I think the language was what I loved most about this biography. I now know more about Hamilton that I ever thought I would know, as well as Jefferson, Adams, Monroe, and Washington. I loved seeing a different side of the founding fathers and their contributions to the nation now. I feel this biography was prevalent to the state of our nation today. Hamilton truly is an inspiration, especially for me as an author. The man could write and write and write, and he was witty and well-spoken too. He worked hard and it paid off for him. He rose to the top of the nation because of it, not to say he didn’t have his own setbacks and grief, because he sure did. If you’re a fan of the Broadway musical or a fan of history, this biography is compelling and enticing!
