244. Krakatoa...

Krakatoa: The Day the World Exploded, August 27, 1883
by Simon Winchester

Started: December 10, 2010

This history of the great volcanic explosion at Krakatoa was well-written and -researched. Unfortunately, it was also kind of boring. I've read some of Winchester's other histories and enjoyed them, but I think this one was just too broad a subject. There weren't any distinct people or personalities to follow. Still, it's not a bad book at all, just not my cup of tea. 384 pages. Grade: C+
