I found myself struggling with the moral questions these doctors and nurses faced, and even in my (comparatively) well rested and nourished state, I still don't know what I would have done. The situations depicted in this book continue to haunt me, but in a very humanizing, humbling way.
Exceedingly long & redundant, but probably necessary to present the views/observations of each person involved. A good primer for disasters, what can happen & discussion about end of life issues. Makes one think of many angles to the event. Reader speaks calmly without imitation of speech, except I take issue with some pronunciations some editor must not have caught. IMO: total collapse by institutions, planning, no preparation in an area prone to this disaster. Exhaustive research & presentation too few will read or heed.
Is six stars possible as a rating for this book? I wish it were. The book is astounding. The research is astounding, the writing is near perfect in pace and tone, and the story is gripping. This is as good as non-fiction gets,
