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.

A good story in concept, lacking a little in excitement but nevertheless well written and entertaining. Certainly, filled a couple of empty hours for me.

I was expecting an end of the world type of read and instead appeared to have purchased a political anti-nuclear lobby interspersed with anecdotes. As soon as I started reading I realised that the story would be on the lines of the Yukushima incident. I did not find the novel particularly interesting - if the action had started earlier it would have been better instead of which we were treated to an explanation on how nuclear fission works. Had I wanted to read about this I would have bought a different type of book.

Yes, when?? Is my question, as this is too much like reality as it's not a question of if this will happen, but when?? You see I truly believe that this will actually happen one day, it's just a question as to when? That's what I love about books like this, they really get your mind thinking as to what you would do when this really happens. Yes, I really do believe one day, a nuclear power plant will explode and we have been close before and will be too close one day again. So I will end with my beginning, when??

I was riveted from the start and this was written in a style that flowed from one character to the next.

At times I forgot I was reading a novel as it was so plausible. A very good read.

I've studied up a fair amount on the Chernobl accident, but this fictional story takes you into the hearts and lives of several people, something greatly missing from the true life stories.
