Book Review by Sharon Powers The book I have for you today, is a fascinating hardcover book, Bodies From the Ash Life and Death in Ancient Pompeii The book gives detailed information about the lives of Pompeii s citizens, the chronology of the eruption of Vesuvius, and striking analysis of events as they likely took place As James M Deem chronicles the fact driven book, he utilizes photographs of architecture, art, and plaster molds of bodies fallen in the ruins Deem relates things that archaeologists have learned through examining the site and shows just how endangered Pompeii is to both the ravages of the elements and to the potential threat of another eruption of Vesuvius Breem explains that Vesuvius is one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world since over one million people live in its shadow I found many of the photographs very moving The reader observes in the mold of the plaster cast of the person s body the very last moments of that person s life We see how each person faced death Then, seeing the architecture and streets where people lived and walked and worked everyday, just made their poignant lives real to me I really, really liked this book That is why I selected it for you If you only have time for one book about Pompeii, this is it It is very informative, poignant, and everything is beautifully presented.
I rate this book 4.
5 stars out of 5 and round up it was that good.
This book is a fifty page chapter book that synthesizes a variety of sources to tell the story of the events of Ancient Pompeii when Mount Vesuvius erupted On August 24th and 25th AD 79, after many days of earthquakes and rumbling, Mount Vesuvius erupted Deem tells the reader the people of Pompeii s reaction to the eruption, how some decided to flea while others decided to stay Since it is unknown what happened to those who did escape Pompeii, Deem focuses on telling the readers about the final days of the people that stayed in Pompeii, the stages of the eruption, the way the ash and the pyroclastic surge formed plaster around the bodies Deem explains how historians have pieced together the history of Pompeii with the few belongs that made it through the eruption and that was not stolen when Pompeii was first rediscovered He tells the reader that many people visit Pompeii for now, until Mount Vesuvius is active again I chose to read this book because the events of Pompeii and the way the bodies were preserved has interested me I think this was a really great book, however, it do not think it was outstanding and I probably would not read it again.
