Stephen Puleo wanted to tell the story of The Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919, so he did. Puleo is an author, historian, university teacher, public speaker, and a communications professional. Some of his works are the “Boston Italians”, “A City So Grand”, and “Dark Tide”. While I was reading this book, I was amazed of how big and fast the Molasses was moving down the streets of Boston. You wouldn 't think of molasses moving fast. But Puleo makes you believe how fast it was going.Puleo was the right guy to write this book. He has plenty of background in history, and he explains the flood really well. On January 15, 1919, it was just a normal day for some firemen, playing cards and talking. But then it changed, a “tremendous crash”(Puleo)
