Literary fiction, classics, dystopian, history, memoir, prize winners, and of course the 1001 books. You really might catch me reading anything!
The chapters of this book that are about the eruption of Laki, the effects on Iceland and continental Europe, and so forth—basically, the chapters that reflect the subtitle of the book—were good.
But too many chapters were volcanic history. Past eruptions and their effects on the planet and people. Possible past eruptions and possible future eruptions and possible effects.
Too much high school science class volcano info. Too much conjecture. But the core of the book is interesting.
