I have not read it in its entirety, but what I have read of Henry Adams's work I have admired and enjoyed.

The memoir of a man and a family, Henry Adams was the son of a diplomat/ politician, grandson of a president and the great-grandson of another. The Adams family had produced leaders for the country since its founding and Henry Adams was heir to that leadership. In his Education he produced one of the best autobiographies ever written, chronicling the rapid change of the last half of the nineteenth century while sharing personal experiences with his father, at Harvard, Washington and elsewhere. I highly recommend this narrative for all readers interested in good writing and the history of the United States. ( )

Fascinating descriptions of the history, art, architecture and personalities associated with Mont Saint Michel and Chartres. Highly recommend, particularly before a visit. ( )
