If anyone is looking for a terrifying non-fiction book to read I recommend Voices From Chernobyl. Svetlana Alexievich is a journalist who interviewed more than 500 eyewitnesses, including firefighters, liquidators (members of the cleanup team), politicians, physicians, physicists, and ordinary citizens, over a period of 10 years. The book explores the experiences of individuals and how the disaster affected their lives. You will read things in here that will haunt you for day. (Here’s PDF version) (Last Book Suggestion)

I haven’t actually finished this book yet, but I intend to and I recommend it, it’s very interesting to get the personal human experience of the tragedy and how it affected the people. We always get the stories and information about how it all happened and the science of the explosion, but you rarely hear or understand the true personal side of the citizens who lived the experience during that time.

READ IT.
