My parents gave me Krakatoa by Simon Winchester as an xmas gift in 04.

I started reading it right away, and of course the quake/tsunami OP's post refers to happened the next day. Over the next week or so, the parallels between what CNN was showing in real time and what I was reading about happening 120 years ago were very eerie.

Thanks for posting this first person account.
