How do you rate or review a book like this?

It's a passionate, well-written, meticulously researched report on an atrocity that should be remembered.

The callous actions and deceit that flowed from the moment disaster struck, leading to so many more dying, and the way blame was shifted onto the dead themselves, happily corroborated and elaborated on by a willing press that ultimately lead to plaudits and renown for the guilty and no ceremony or human regard for their charred victims' remains, discarded without a thought, just like their lives, should stay with us.

This is capitalism and the authority of the state. Think how much else that is kept from you and you refuse to see.

I am very glad this tale is being told and hope those exploited in life and death are granted some peace. A peace we should never allow those whose hands our necks rest in.

Some good writing. At its worst was like a book assigned for a bad sociology class. If I never read the term 'versed' again I'll be fine.

Herrera is such a master of this concise, immediate story-telling, and fills it with so much introspection and commentary without adding bulk, I'm just amazed with every book. I particularly liked the metaphors of structure here.
