I have checked this out twice and enjoyed it each time.
The writer ties together a series of global consequences from the largest eruption of recorded human history, from starvation in China and Europe to the influence on art and, especially, the storms that forced Mary Shelly and her friends to stay inside and tell ghost stories, one of which became "Frankenstine."
I heartily recommend it if you're interested in volcanos, climate change, cultural history or natural disasters.
