A Fascinating Mystery,
This review is from: The Tunguska Fireball: Solving One of the Great Mysteries of the 20th Century (Hardcover)
This is an excellent book written by Surendra Verma who is based in Australia. The Tunguska Mystery has baffled Scientists, Geologists, and numerous Writers and Researchers for decades, and even today no one really knows the real truth, unless of course, you happen to be a fan of the X-Files.
This is a bold attempt to try and solve the mystery and Verma does mention some possibilities which may be nearer to the mark than one thinks. For example, the possibiilty that it was a fragmented meteorite which did explode in the atmosphere due to the intense heat, not leaving a crater, and only minute fragments on the ground. This would be the best suggestion of all in solving this mystery. However, what I like about Verma's fine book is that he involves all suggestions and theories even down to the level of the X-Files which I found very entertaining indeed! So, it is an easy to read and well written essay, rather than a long winded and tiresome academic study which I am sure would turn off the majority of readers.
A fascinating and readable account of one of the most enduring mysteries of the 20thC.
