Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 9/14/2013

    " This book was mesmerizing and heartbreaking. It shines a light on a Katrina story that was not focused on very much in the mainstream media. Anyone who is interested in the topic at all should read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jimmie | 3/26/2013

    " Outstanding research and writing about Hurricane Kristina and its impact on residents of St. Bernard Parish. A very personal look at some folks who lived and fished and cared for that part of South Louisiana. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 11/12/2012

    " This book was interesting and very informative. I am glad this reporter managed to get to the St. Bernard parish and tell the story of what happened during and after Katrina, or I guess we would never know. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jimmy | 10/9/2012

    " A very interesting insight into a culture few understand and even fewer are aware of. A vanishing part of the american fabric "

    " Ken Wells' book about what happened to people in St Bernard during Hurricanne Katrina is amazing. The book tells the first hand account of several people who stayed in St. Bernard during the storm and lived to tell their stories. I will read this book again. "

    " A true life account of Katrina and it's aftermath in St. Bernard Parish. Shocking tales told by a truly great writer. If you haven't read his fiction, you should. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 11/16/2011

    " I would have loved to read this book about the history of St. Bernard Parrish even before Katrina. Within the context of the storm, its heartbreaking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzon | 12/23/2010

    " This book blew me away--'though not literally, as happened to some of the people interviewed for this true account of hurricane Katrina in the parishes east of New Orleans. The story was gripping, moving, and informative. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 9/3/2010

    " This book is a little outdated already, but that's a good thing because it means recovery from Katrina has progressed since the date of publication. The things I enjoyed most about this book were the stories told by the St. Bernard residents of living thru the storm and its immediate aftermath. "
