Ok, the last half was more interesting. I found myself wanting to know more about the nature and some of the people they only mentioned. How about the girl Walt took "swimming" at Berens River (Betty)? Or the people who threw the parties at the Canoe Club? I know it was just a journal, but a little detail would have made it read better. I give the book a 4 out of 10 possible stars. I liked Sevareid. He was one of the TV guys who was a writer and journalist before he was a broadcaster, and it seems they always did a better job reporting without bias or slant. Today's broadcast "journalists" could learn a thing or two from the old guys.
I still think Betty and Walt did a little more than swim that day.
