Book 31: A Perfect Red, by Amy Butler Greenfield
I was super excited when I saw this book and thought it would be a perfect type of book for me and I did enjoy parts of it, but other parts we a bit of a slog-fest.
I loved the topic of how the color red was used, viewed and regarded in a historical context. Those parts were facinating and I wished there was more of that.
I did not like the process of creating the dye, the economic or the espionage parts of the book. I found it tedious and dry reading. I ended up skimming most of those sections.
It is as plain and simple as that.
