Amazing book!! Very sad. Very tragic. This book is extremely well written. Easy to follow and very well researched. Even though there is a lot of information it is easily absorbed and it reads like you are watching a movie. The balance of pre-fire, the actual event and the aftermath is perfect. No unnecessary information or fading off the subject. And the search for the cause is almost as gripping as the fire itself. This is a horrific event!! If you are a very sensitive or soft hearted person... this book might be hard to read. The fire is painful to read. The author does such an amazing job describing the event you almost feel like you were there. I literally felt drained after reading about the events on that tragic day. With that said, this book is one of the best I've ever read.
