Review: Poetry is not really my thing, so it was hard to rate this book.  I listened to it in eAudiobook format, so it really felt like I was listening to a play with all the back and forth dialogues and monologues.  I personally did not really enjoy it, but I didn’t give it a low rating because I appreciate the amount of research that went into it and I liked that the author showed several different conflicting perspectives.  This gave a more complete picture of what happened (and why) on the fateful and tragic day of May 4, 1970.

One thought on “Kent State

  1. This story intrigues me. I can’t believe that Kent State was 50 years ago. Yet I didn’t see anything on the news about the anniversary. That’s sad. I am going to listen to this as well. Thanks for the recommendation
