  • Still stands as the worst

    historical-places-events, historical-research, historical-figures, nonfiction, Russia, nuclear-reactor Worse than Three Mile Island in 1979 or Fukushima in 2011 was the disaster in Chernobyl in 1986. I have seen and read about the aftereffects on flora, fauna, people, land/water, and atmosphere for these past thirty years but nothing trustworthy about the causes and government response. This book does that, and its veracity is apparent by the amount of obsessive research in printed records and eyewitness accounts. Some aspects are best understood by nuclear physicists, but a little creative eyerolling is not a bad thing in such cases. The magnitude of incompetence tolerated and the political fallout, however, is easily understood by most of us. For me, it was a Must Read, and I am thankful that I had the opportunity. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Simon and Schuster Publishing via NetGalley. Thank you!

  • Compelling read!

    This true story is delivered with such dynamic and vivid detail that i could not put it down each night. The author relies upon new and direct original evidence. Very compelling and startling to read. I loved this book. Highly recommend to anyone interested in recent Russian history.

  • Midnight in Chernobyl

    Very thorough -- even (after reading the whole historical story of what happeed) an index, pictures, fulsome annotations ... But, the account of what happened, then cogently tied in to overall developments in the world --esp. Russia -- is impressive. Impartiality seems evident. However, to be sufficiently thorough and yet make it a real page -turner (I looked forward to get back to reading it every day) is truly impressive.

    Thanks for your feedback!
