Sorrowful tale of the Chernobyl Nuclear accident and lives impacted by it. Left me wondering how close to the truth is it?
A brilliant and profound book. The story of what happened at Chernobyl and the lives of people within and without the Soviet bureaucracy is told with immense, and devastating compassion and insight. One of the great novels of this decade.
"Follows the lives of several people on the eve of the Chernobyl disaster, including a 9-year-old piano prodigy, a leading surgeon with a failing marriage, and a young Ukraine villager who wakes to find his cattle bleeding from their ears."
