Goodreads Review: Tonight We Bombed the U.S. Capitol: The Explosive Story of M19, America’s First Female Terrorist Group by William Rosenau

One star review, originally posted here on September 24, 2021.

This book was so boring.

I dunno, maybe it’s just me. I’ve been supposedly “reading” 3 books concurrently recently, and never finishing any of them, because all of them are boring. But I can’t bring myself to do 3 DNF’s at once, especially since I think I’ve only ever had 2 or 3 DNFs total, so I try to push through. This one was an audiobook, so you’d think at least I could just turn it on and zone out, but even that was too tedious. But I got there.

It’s tough to put my finger on why this book bored me so much more than any other dry non-fiction. Dry non-fiction is my jam! And yet somehow this one was just soooo dry. No storytelling. No pazazz. No relating to the kooky characters. They were just a bunch of kinda boring people who wanted to blow things up I guess. There definitely SHOULD be an interesting tale buried in here somewhere. More gifted writing would have found it and drawn it out. Lady domestic terrorists should be gripping material. Alas…

So boring. So glad to put it behind me.
