Genre: Biography

Read & Reviewed By: Me
Rating: 2/C

This book is from my personal collection.

The inside story of the negotiations involving John Paul II, Soviet President Gorbachev, and General Jaruzelski of Portland that led to Poland's and Eastern Europe's transition form communism to democracy.

My Thoughts:
I did not care much for this book; I regretted buying this book. I have read biographies that were much more interesting than this one. It bored me to tears and took me almost two months to finish this book and that is not like me. This book read more like a text book, which is why I gave it only two stars and a grade of D.  It gave a bunch of history on Poland, going back a hundred years before the Blessed Pope John Paul II was even born.  I do not recommend Pope John Paul II by Tad Szulc.  If you want to read a biography on Pope John II, I would recommend a finding a different author and one that covers Blessed Pope John Paul II’s entire life span.
