    One thought on “Cleveland's Greatest Disasters!: 16 Tragic True Tales of Death and Destruction - An Anthology -”

    1. Growing up near Cleveland I never heard of most of these disasters. In fact, the only one I remember hearing about was about how Lake Erie kept catching fire. I didn't know that it did it as many times as it did until I read this book though. All the tales covered are interesting and I would recommend this book overall.

    2. Loved the stories, they were all fascinating, but not all are set in Cleveland -- one story is the great Ashtabula Bridge Disaster of 1876. Also, the Doodlebug Crash in Cuyahoga Falls made the book. This didn't really bother me, though, because I found both stories just as interesting as the ones set in Cleveland.What did drive me a bit bonkers was the arrangement of the book. In the book, there are some stories that relate to others. In the latter story ( how it was organized in the book), the [...]

    3. This is a collection of 16 disaster tales, told from Bellamy's other considerable books on famous (and infamous) Cleveland-area events. This is a noce collection for local history buffs to have on hand. Bellamy had a narrative writing style that is easy to follow, filled with a dry wit and a no-holds barred attitude when reflecting on what went wrong. That is the tragedy in so many of these cases -- isn't that usually the case though? There were usually hints that something bad could happen, and [...]

    4. I originally thought about only giving this book three stars, because I was a little disappointed that this book was an anthology of 16 tales taken from his 5 earlier books about Cleveland's "darker" side. However, that would not be fair to a new reader to his works, considering I thought his previous books were all excellent. If you enjoyed this book, I recommend all the books he pulled these stories from-he has a way about writing about Cleveland's rougher past that makes this an easy read, de [...]

    5. Intriguing and well-written with an underlying political message. Not just about the narrative of the disasters, but about who disasters happen to and why. The victims of most of these accidents were immigrants and the working class, and the responsible parties were always unregulated and heartless corporations.The one qualm I had with this book was the creepy way the author referred to some accidents and deaths as "beautiful" or "beautifully tragic." I like reading about disasters as much as th [...]

    6. The stories were interesting, especially for someone from Cleveland born after they all happened but many of the stories were very hard to read. Make sure you have some tissue with you as you read, and you might need to take a break between stories.

    7. I have read all the tales in this book as this is an anthology of his previous 5 complete works. That said, this work picks the 16 tragic tales that showed the best in heroics and the best in people who were involved.

    8. This was more interesting than I thought at first. The account of the 150+ school children who died in a school fire in the 1930's was heartbreaking.

    9. These stories were very interesting but also very sad. I am surprised I hadn't heard about some of these tragedies before, seeing that my grandparents lived in Cleveland all their lives. I like how the author describes what happened but also puts the tales in a historical context (for example, not only Cleveland had fireworks factories in the middle of neighborhoods in the late 1800's). He also is sure to point out the heroes of each story as well. Educational for sure, but if you read it, be pr [...]
