Finished Reading: Pandemic 1918 – The Story of the Deadliest Influenza in History by Catharine Arnold


Pandemic 1918: The Story of the Deadliest Influenza in HistoryPandemic 1918: The Story of the Deadliest Influenza in History by Catharine Arnold
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

To say I enjoyed this book wouldn’t quite be accurate – yet it was a very good read. The so-called ‘Spanish Flu’ was a terrible affliction and given the circumstances we now find ourselves in, this book is a timely read. It provides a number of worrying parallels and similarities (though there are differences) between 1918 and 2020 – for a book published prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Well worth the read – if you can deal with two pandemics at the same time.
