finished the book I picked up my copy of Howard Zinn s A People s History of the United States and started reading Due to the fact that I have been writingthan reading this summer, I have to admit that I made a poor choice when I picked this book for my summer read This was due to the size and slow pace of this historical fiction novel about John Abigail Adams First published in 1965, it is

main complaint is where the author chose to focus his attention This book is quite longnearly 650 pages It is not a quick or easy read While I give credit to Stone for staying as true to the style of the language of the day, I could have done with less description By the end of the story, I was almost glad John Adams didn t win his second term as I did not wish to devote anytime to Stone s story I ve read quite a bit on John and Abigail Adams through the years They were, indeed, very much in love and very much a part of the making of their country s history during their lives But, for me, the real John and Abigail Adams were missing from this book I found Stone s characterization to be too one dimensional I didn t read about the controlling, irritating side of John Adams Stone s John Adams, I imagine, islikeable than the historical one I also didn t read about the fiercely outspoken, almost possessively protective Abigail Stone s Abigail was muchsoft spoken than her surviving letters to her husband and Thomas Jefferson suggest of the historical figure I ve always imagined her to be One of the biggest disappointments in the book was, what I perceived as the glossing over of the two greatest occurrences of John Adams Presidential administrationThe XYZ Affair and especially The Alien And Sedition Acts the latter of which still serves as a stain on Adams otherwise impeccable political character and most certainly led to him not gaining a second term I felt Stone spenttime explaining the styles of furnishings and types of clothes the Adamses favored instead of matters of greater import To gain athorough and readable understanding of these otherwise fascinating historical figures, I d suggest reading David McCullough s magnificent John Adams or Cokie Roberts, Founding Mothers It s a shame that this book, in my opinion, was a waste of time I would have been better served reading Joseph Ellis telling of the Adams story in his book, First Family a book I planned to have read, but will now need to be put on hold Those Who Love has effectively led me to need a break from John Abigail Adams as well as from the time period in which they lived This is an unfortunate consequence of having read Irving Stone s book, because from what I ve read previously about John Abigail Adams, they deserved a book to beworthy of who they really were FINISHED 8
