Boardwalk Empire

FREE DOWNLOAD Ã Boardwalk Empire And power struggles to the city's rebirth as an entertainment and gambling mecca where anything go Boardwalk Empire is an interesting and enjoyable if rather uneven read Victims of this most recent recession economy will undoubtedly be interested to know that Atlantic City s initial development and success was brought on not by the nation s wealthiest vacations but rather by blue collar workers and wage earners eager for a weekend getaway they could afford The resort s uniue and complicated relationship with minority workers during that time also makes for rather fascinating readingOf course the book s heart really lies in its description of Atlantic City s heyday during the 1920 s aka the reign of Nucky Johnson It is definitely no accident that THIS is the portion of the book Terrence Winter chose to develop into an HBO series Fans of the series will undoubtedly recognize some of their favorite colorful characters from the show in their historic doppelgangers The Nucky chapter of the book is chock full of interesting anecdotes in depth character analyses and shocking connections between organized crime and political and economic success on the Boardwalk I suspect an entire book could have been written about this portion of Atlantic City s history alone For this reader in fact a narrative focus limited to the 20 s would have been preferable to this slightly over ambitious complete historical overview I can t help but wonder how many interesting stories were discarded so that the author could finish his historical analysis of the CityThings took a turn for the dull toward the center of the book which chronicled Atlantic City s admittedly mundane history between the 1950 s and the 1970 s The author s faithful recapturing of each and every important political figure who reigned supreme in Atlantic City during that time became extremely tedious Eventually the various commissioners gamers crooks and politicians identities all seemed to merge and become indistinguishable from one another As a result of this reader s lack of identification with these characters their individual stories began to seem uninteresting and unremarkableToward the middle of the book the author also seemed to develop this odd narrative techniue of introducing a random character into the story and then never mentioning him or her again I found that a bit distractingFortunately the book picked up steam in its final sections The Donald Trump segment of the story in particular was fascinating and extremely well written This chapter too I think could have easily been developed into its own bookIn conclusion I think this was a case of a talented writer who did a spectacular amount of research and then simply bit off than he could chew in its retelling I would probably recommend that readers focus on the early portions of the book and the Trump chapter and skim the rest The Burning The Haunting of Grey Hills know that Atlantic City

CHARACTERS Boardwalk Empire

FREE DOWNLOAD Ã Boardwalk Empire In Boardwalk Empire Atlantic City springs to life in all its garish splendor Author Nelson Johnson I ve been watching the HBO TV series Boardwalk Empire since the COVID 19 closure of my university and this book which the show was supposedly based upon seemed like an interesting companion Boardwalk Empire as a book has very little in common with the TV series but it s still definitely a book I enjoyed and it s very well researched Chronicling the dark political underworld of Atlantic City but also the area s beginnings prior and the people responsible for building it up this book has a lot of depth and gives new life to old historyWhile the concluding chapters are somewhat dry and I didn t find them as interesting as the rest of the book for the most part this presents a very captivating powerful story From this place s humble beginnings shared by those with big dreams the role of black workers in developing the area into the semblance of what it became to the prohibition era politics and the bosses who ran it Boardwalk Empire is a very well written portrait of Atlantic City both the good and the bad ualities While it may be a disappointment to fans of the TV series looking for 1920 s gangster violence and corrupt character drama as they saw on screen it s still worth reading if you want to know the non fiction story behind the fictional plot Empire State Building: The Making of a Landmark know the non fiction story behind the fictional plot
