I found the narrator compelling and think that had Douglas himself read his book to us it would have been in the same measured tone. The appalling story needs no emotional addition to be effective.

The author did a great job in making all the characters authentic. Movie material.
I was moved and awed by the people and how heroic so many were in attempting to avert an even larger disaster. Important work.

I had not known about this historical novel about the London Gordon riots of 1780. Fascinating history with typically good and evil characters. I loved it. it took a while for me to get used to the narrator's "acting" voice, but still it worked for me.

important portraits of famous and unsung heroes and heroines of the civil rights movement. We can learn so much and think harder and better about how hard it was to get voting rights and civil rights and how much more remains to be done. An excellent book

This was a book club choice. An important, depressing account of the history of race in the U.S.
