4 stars out of 5
The kindle edition has 45 pages. It took me about 20 minutes to completely read it. It consists of multiple explanations for why the Black Death started. It also talks about plague doctors and literature works that resulted from the plague. It briefly discusses persecution due to religious beliefs. Most importantly, the timeline goes through different outbreaks.
Pro: The structure of the book starts with the Black Death, then the second pandemic, and ends with the third pandemic. This allows the reader to understand that there was more than one outbreak. Great book for those wanting to learn a little about the Black Death.
Con: While this little book is comprehensive, some of the events mentioned are very brief. So, if you are looking for a book that is more in-depth when it comes to different pandemics then this book is not for you.
