Sintesi dell'editore

Well known for The Jungle, his scathing exposé of the Chicago meatpacking industry at the turn of the 20th century, Upton Sinclair here takes on yet another massive industry: coal mining.

Based on the 1914 and 1915 Colorado coal strikes, King Coal describes the abhorrent conditions faced by workers in the western United States' coal mining industry during the 1910s. The story follows Hal Warner, a rich man looking to get a better view of the lives of commoners. It is a tale of struggle, threats, and violence, of hardened men and the advocacy for workers' rights. In this business, the road to unionization is a rocky one.

A little preachy

Loved The Jungle, but with Coal you can tell the fame of the former impacted the latter. You know what you are getting with Sinclair politically, but this was a over-bearing deeper in the book. Sure, it is a classic and I trust a lot of his details, but it drones on with holier than thou descriptions of rich people and how he was the smartest guy in the room. Be ready with the 30 second skip button from time to time. It was due to this I unfairly started to get aggravated with the narrator’s voices.

Upton Sinclair does it again

Similar to oil! This novel brings the reader into the world of working class struggle in early 20th century US. Worth the listen!
