    Hard To Put Down Story About A Terrible Fire

    I thought this club was in Beverly Hills California, but it is not. I had thought the book would be a story about what many survivor's went through and it is more a story of the personal experience of Wayne Dammert. However I found it to be an excellent book, absorbing and hard to put down. It describes the fire from start to finish. I was amazed to learn that John Davidson, a famous singer and personality of the time, was on site almost ready to go on stage. It is astounding to learn of the rapid spread of the fire, and how it sat for so long undetected. The activities in the ballroom continued until a waiter/busboy courageously grabbed the microphone and calmly suggested people leave, even pointing out the exits. Unfortunately most people did not leave - and how often do we ourselves sometimes think Well I finally got a table, I'm not getting up, or Well I paid good money for this ticket or I just got my drink or food, I'm not going to leave now. The people that left right away lived. The story about how the fire spread, and the struggle down black corridors where doors were locked, and the pile ups at the exits is sobering and it is difficult to put the book down. The book edition I bought is very high quality, well bound and using excellent quality paper. The photos are numerous and clear. An amazing story about a terrible event.
