What a page-turner ! Not something I'd usually say about a non-fiction book, but this is extraordinarily compulsive reading material. Fascinating, insightful, educational, riveting. I didn't realize it had won the Pulitzer prize until it arrived with a sticker on the front saying so, and it totally deserves it. Buy this right away, it's a story we should ALL be informed about .
This was a really great book - found it hard to put down, meticulously researched and with a great narrative voice to make it read like a thriller. I get the impression that some things may have been left out or simplified for the sake of narrative, but it definitely covers many of the key events well, and is a good read for those who a nice introduction to this fascinating, and horrifying, subject.
I found this to be a very well written and fascinating read. I was amazed by the amount of content in the book that I had not even been aware of. It was written in prose that were easy to read and the insight into this subject matter was excellent. I would definitely recommend this book.
