The Nuclear Catastrophe
on 24 February 2013
Upon reading the description of the book (what would happen to a community that was experiencing a nuclear nightmare), I was very excited to start reading `The Nuclear Catastrophe.'
While the book has merits, it is a little disappointing in parts. Although `The Nuclear Catastrophe' delivers the story the description promises, the story line appears as though it were much more modern seeming than it actually was.
Also, they were in situations that are unheard of in the current day world. For instance, in the book the community had no plan should a nuclear situation arise. I am positive that every city and town that has a nuclear power plant has an emergency plan for disastrous situations, so this surprised me.
Also, a lot of the people believed that because you could not feel or see radiation, that it was not real. This was true of people in the early 1900's when radiation was still something new and not really understood yet. I might have enjoyed the book more had I not been excited about a different type of story, a better description would do wonders for the books future reviews.
