I picked this book because I loved Devil In The White City by Erik Larson and wanted his earlier work. Erik has a rare talent of making non-fiction read like fiction. This book is outstanding. AND to think how timely it is with the aftermath of Katrina and how politics got in the way of managing that disaster.
I highly recommend this and Larson's other book if you haven't gotten that one yet.
Best audiobook ever. I didn't want it to end. Great characters, pacing, complex storyline. Who would have known it's a true story. Non-fiction that reads like great fiction. Highly entertaining and highly informative.
This narrator was the worst. He couldn't keep my attention for more than 15 seconds at a time. I was so looking forward to listening and gave up a few hours in. I am a regular audiobook listener and he was awful.
Excellent book with seamless blend of scientific fact into the story to refute "conventional wisdom" borne of junk science. If you're a lockstep liberal, don't bother reading this. But if you have a mind of your own and have ever questioned common beliefs, this book is for you.
Oh, and like most Crichton books, the action is fast paced from the outset and the book is difficult to put down.
