In terms of the actual book, Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital
, I understand why it was so lengthy--Sheri Fink certainly had a lot of information to tell. However, that being said, as a busy mom with lots of other things going on each day it was a bit longer than I would have liked. Perhaps instead of the book having two parts, it became two separate books in a set. At 592 pages, it was a bit of an intimidating or daunting task to finish!
If you like books about true life events or natural disasters, make sure to grab a copy of Five Days at Memorial.
