The Memorial

Creator: Christopher Isherwood | Fiction - 2012-05-31

With subtle wit and trademark irony, Isherwood's second novel evokes a society in flux.

Publisher: Vintage Digital

About this book
The First World War is over. Eric Vernon is on the cusp of adulthood. Tall, bony and awkward he finds himself torn between a desire to emulate his heroic father, who led a life of quiet sacrifice, and resentment toward his father's roguish friend Edward Blake, who survived the war only to throw himself into gay life in Berlin. With subtle wit and trademark irony, Isherwood's second novel evokes a society in flux.

    0 2/5 Lance Lewis (Delanco, NJ, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Solar Lighted Weeping Angel Memorial Garden Stone (Kitchen) Buyer beware the angel only lit for 2 days and that was that DEAD.I put a different battery in it to no avail. HOWEVER! I will say that Collections Etc is a Amazonian company I would definitely buy from again. I emailed them about the problem and they responded the next day. I received a replacement item in 3 days. Now that is service and the replacement is still going strong. Collections Etc gets a five star rating in my book and I would purchase from them again if for no other reason they stand behind the products they sell ( WOW is that a novel concept in this day and age or what!) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 1, 2013

    Delighted

    0 5/5 Delighted - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Solar Lighted Weeping Angel Memorial Garden Stone (Kitchen) I love my weeping Angel. It is very pretty and a nice addition to my family memorial garden I created in my back yard. Found some really neat memorial rocks that you can personally engrave from Gifts For You and was able to create the perfect memorial garden. The only thing I wasn't expecting to buy is batteries since the Angel is suppose to be solar. Other than that I would recommend this product to others who want a nice piece in their memorial gardens. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 6, 2012

    Five Days You Won't Forget

    The first half of this book reads like an apocalyptic thriller while the second half is like a legal drama and in fact was dramatized on the television show, Boston Legal.The tragedy that occurred at Memorial Hospital in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina is unflinchingly detailed by the author. The horrors that the staff and patients had to face will haunt you. The actions that were taken to save lives was heroic. There were also decisions made, however, that led to at least 7 deaths. Were these unavoidable casualties of the disaster or were these people murdered to effect a long overdue rescue of the remaining patients and staff?The questions surrounding the deaths led to an investigation of one doctor and a couple of nurses. This legal investigation is what comprises the second half of the book.The author, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, gives a fair and complete assessment of the five day ordeal in the storm ravaged hospital. There is also background... 5/5 Ferdy (Georgia, USA) - See all my reviews, August 1, 2013

    For those prepared to grapple with major ethical issues

    This is not the type of book that anyone should pick up if they are not prepared to deal with some extremely grim realities. Although certainly all of us have heard, and some of us have experienced personally, the horrors resulting from "natural disasters", Sheri Fink's exhaustively detailed description of events at Memorial Hospital in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina is uniquely powerful.This is a book that SHOULD make one angry as well as profoundly and deeply distressed. It is also a fascinating investigation of the evolution of human perspective as "technical medicine" has become ever more complex and infrastructure-dependent. It includes an extraordinarily focused discussion of the historical issues - the fact that this hospital was flooded previously, but the necessary upgrades to provide better protection for the backup generators as recommended was never accomplished, being the most cogent.For anyone who is not aware of the background story: As... 5/5 Trudie Barreras - See all my reviews, September 5, 2013

    As good as The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

    Fink takes on a story with moral and ethical overtones- what killed 45 patients at Memorial Hospital in New Orleans in the days following Hurricane Katrina, in her incredibly fascinating Five Days at Memorial. Fink interviewed dozens of people who were there- doctors, nurses, aides, family members, patients, hospital administrators, rescuers, police investigators, coroners and more to tell her gripping story.Fink drops the reader right into the hospital during the hurricane and in the horrific aftermath of the storm, when the levees failed and the hospital was completely surrounded by floodwaters. The reader feels the rising panic as generators fail, toilets stop working, medicines run low, cell phones die and communication is lost with the outside world.Close to 200 people were evacuated from the hospital by helicopter and boats, but 45 patients died, most of them either terminally or gravely ill, the most of any hospital in the city. And most of them died of... 5/5 Diane "bookchickdi" (New York, NY USA) - See all my reviews, September 10, 2013

    Beautiful locket!!

    0 5/5 w.wahiker "w.wahiker" (Seattle, WA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: "Always in My Heart" Memorial Urn Locket-Filigree Pewter Tone (Misc.) I absolutely love this locket!! It's a great quality, perfect size, chain is durable and strong. I would not have been more pleased by any of the lockets sold at the funeral home for more than 4X the price!I'm confused by other reviews of this item that state the locket pops open and the canister falls out...... I don't see how that can happen because the chain goes through the two loops which "lock" the locket closed. Maybe the design has changed, but mine looks the same as the item that is pictured, so I'm just not sure. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 23, 2013
