Topic: The Devil in the White City
Does anyone have some suggestions for a good thesis statements for a book critique about The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson?
I am also looking for a document that can explain the components of a book critique-not for an English class, but a history class.

Here's a suggestion for a thesis statement:
Erik Larson's The Devil in the White City focuses on a single serial killer during Chicago's preparation for the world fair to shed a broader light on the seediness and underbelly of the city during America's turn-of-the-century time period.
In regards to a book critique in a history sense, you need to focus more on how Larson's book comments on American culture, and specifically on medical experimentation in Chicago during the early 1900s.
