RA Alert: Bataan Death March

Let’s start a new award, for “The Review That Most Makes You Want to Read the Book.” It’s surprising how few would qualify.

My nominee this week comes from the NYT BR, in a special category, “Most Made Me Want to Read a Book about a Subject I’m Not Drawn to,” for Dwight Garner’s review of Tears in the Darkness: The Story of the Bataan Death March and its Aftermath by Michael Norman and Elizabeth M. Norman.

Library reserves are averaging 5 to 1 in six large systems we checked. It’s been moving up Amazon and is currently at #22, indicating it will appear on next week’s best seller lists.

What about you? Seen any reviews lately that made you say, “I’ve just gotta read that one”?
