" The book was OK, covering an event which was unfamiliar to me, and I believe is generally unfamiliar to most. The author tells the story through the recollections of a number of survivors, but the book wasn't as dramatic as I guessed it might have been. It read more like a series of newspaper accounts, factual, interesting, but the danger the survivors must have felt didn't always come across. Interesting to me, living in the 21st century, was the description of the lack of accurate weather forecasting at the time. "
