By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

Dead Wake

Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania - Erik Larson

An account of the sinking of the Lusitania. Larson tells the narrative very well, and clearly had a lot of research behind his writing. I have to say, though, that at least for me, I didn’t find the story as heartbreaking as I should have and I think was meant to.
