33 Men.... by Jonathan Franklin

The entire title: 33 Men: Inside the Miraculous Survival and Dramatic Rescue of the Chilean Miners

The author gets a "Rescue Team" pass, which let him get close to what happened and he talked to some of the miners later. It was interesting, but like a newspaper article is interesting or a schoolbook is interesting. It's non-fiction, sure, but usually authors write so you feel what happens.

There are color pictures in the middle, which is great because they're frequently only black and white. There's a good map and graphic at the front of the book.

It was nice to know the order of things and when things happened, but when there were more falls, for example, I didn't feel anything about it.
