I just finished reading Zeitoun by Dave Eggers. Before I read it, I thought it was going to be about one family's Katrina ordeal. After reading it, I realized it was an eye-opener about basic human rights, and how our government mishandled the people of New Orleans during and after Katrina. It is one of the best books I have read in a long time. I got it from my local library free on my tablet, but now I want to buy a copy, as all of the proceeds go to charitable organizations.
It was fun to mapquest the addresses in the book, so I knew exactly where he was talking about.
