    2.5 5 starsI would be giving this book two stars, as it was so incredibly boring, but it was full of Hamilton references and that alone bumps it up a star Overall, this book almost put me asleep multiple times This was not written by Lin Manuel Miranda, and, for some reason, my heart was expecting it was In other words, this is nothing like Hamilton If you hope to enjoy it, then I would suggest should disconnecting both stories from your mind and see them as separate entities I didn t 2.5 5 starsI would be giving this book two stars, as it was so incredibly boring, but it was full of Hamilton references and that alone bumps it up a star Overall, this book almost put me asleep multiple times This was not written by Lin Manuel Miranda, and, for some reason, my heart was expecting it was In other words, this is nothing like Hamilton If you hope to enjoy it, then I would suggest should disconnecting both stories from your mind and see them as separate entities I didn t I should have known better

    I will admit that everything I know about Hamilton I ve learned from LMM, and perhaps that s my own downfall going into this book I wanted to love this so much I wanted to see the delicious banter that is hinted at in the musical Instead, Angelica comes across as bitter, Peggy insipid, and Eliza naive I saw nothing of the smart, charismatic girls I was expecting Yes, the moments between Alex and Eliza are eventually sweet, there is a lot of book to get through before those moments happen T I will admit that everything I know about Hamilton I ve learned from LMM, and perhaps that s my own downfall going into this book I wanted to love this so much I wanted to see the delicious banter that is hinted at in the musical Instead, Angelica comes across as bitter, Peggy insipid, and Eliza naive I saw nothing of the smart, charismatic girls I was expecting Yes, the moments between Alex and Eliza are eventually sweet, there is a lot of book to get through before those moments happen The history side of the story is dull, dense, and info dumpy I skimmed through a lot of it because I was bored I kept reading because I expected something amazing to happen and yet I never found it Oh and FYI view spoiler there s a scene where Eliza gets assaulted by her fianc before Alex breaks it up I feel like there could have been a better way to break up the engagement, but whatever hide spoiler I m sure people will love it, it just wasn t for me Huge thanks to G.P Putnam and Sons for providing the arc free of charge

    This is honestly a really hard book for me to rate and review I have a lot of mixed feelings so it s hard for me to decide on a solid rating.Now first off to clarify, this is not a rip off of Hamilton the musical The inspiration for this came from the author seeing the musical, but it tells an entirely different story This is just what the title says, a love story However, it s a different love story than the one we see in Hamilton the musical which I will be just referring to as Hamilton f This is honestly a really hard book for me to rate and review I have a lot of mixed feelings so it s hard for me to decide on a solid rating.Now first off to clarify, this is not a rip off of Hamilton the musical The inspiration for this came from the author seeing the musical, but it tells an entirely different story This is just what the title says, a love story However, it s a different love story than the one we see in Hamilton the musical which I will be just referring to as Hamilton from here on I m going to take some time compare the two because really the comparisons are inevitable In Hamilton Eliza is definitely a primary character, but in my opinion she takes a back seat to Alexander himself and Aaron Burr, even Angelica sometimes Love plays a key role in Hamilton but it is largely about politics, and really the story of Hamilton himself This book on the other hand, gives Elizaof a voice and it showsof the struggles at the beginning of their love story I m not an American historian by any means, I m not even an American, so I can t attest to the historical accuracy of the novel From my understanding so little is known about the Eliza Alex romance that most of the novel is just creative liberties taken on part of the author If that is the case, I wasn t a huge fan of the route she decided to take I m going to abruptly end this here because I want to do a full video review for this, I will link it once I do But basically I liked it but I did have some real issues with it which I will delve deeper into in a video reviewI received an advanced finished copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

    Exquisite A truly great and very endearing love story The honor, self sacrifice, and era are reminiscent of Pride and Prejudice I was not expecting to love it so much A must read if you re a Jane Austen fan

    DNF at 1 3 of the way through.I think I ll try this one again in the future but I m really disappointed by this The writing is not good at all The inner monologue and explanations of the Revolutionary War is really dry and the dialogue is eye rolling and vapid There is absolutely no charm behind Hamilton or Eliza s characters and De La Cruz, so far, has really not fleshed them out at all I think my love for the musical is blinding me to enjoying this book because the versions of those charac DNF at 1 3 of the way through.I think I ll try this one again in the future but I m really disappointed by this The writing is not good at all The inner monologue and explanations of the Revolutionary War is really dry and the dialogue is eye rolling and vapid There is absolutely no charm behind Hamilton or Eliza s characters and De La Cruz, so far, has really not fleshed them out at all I think my love for the musical is blinding me to enjoying this book because the versions of those characters and the sass and vivid personalities REALLY contrasts with the versions of the people portrayed in this book, and I m torn I thought I would love this because it would be a cute tale of two people who I love, but it s readinglike a textbook than anything else If I was here for that, I would just pick up Chernow s biography of Hamilton instead
