The book was well written with a great deal of care and precision on a delicate matter in which he had to talk to families who lost loved ones. There is a great deal of documentation and footnotes at the end of the book to help some readers look beyond the book and read more articles about the issues with the Boston Harbor.
This book could easily be made into a movie. It was definitely be worth watching, especially after reading this book. At times, the book moved very slowly, in part because Swidley took such care to talk about the backgrounds of the various divers and individuals in the book. I believe he could have left some of these details out. As the story stands on it’s own and was interesting to learn about the dynamics of working 10 miles out to sea in a tunnel.
For those interested in history and drama, this is a very good book.
"I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review."
