Fink describes the harrowing conditions following hurricane Katrina in Memorial hospital. Actions taken by doctors and nurses reveal the devastating results of poor planning. Fink attempts to answer the question: how can we be better prepared for disaster? The Apple TV+ miniseries is well made, but fails to communicate the intended theme of this book as effectively as the source material. Read the book.
Five Days at Memorial
Books | Sheri Fink
Overall, a fun spooky story. Moreno-Garcia tells—rather than shows—us who the main character is in a rush of exposition, but we get to know her for ourselves as the story progresses. It’s a nice, slow-burn thriller, once the main story begins.
