Midnight in Chernobyl: The Untold Story of the World's Greatest Nuclear Disaster
I started reading this one at 2:00AM last night. Kiddo had a middle of the night accident and I was finding it difficult to get back to sleep. I thought a dense non-fiction might help me nod off. This is not a dense non-fiction. It reads like a thriller. It's not dull or boring in the least. In fact, you can see exactly why the producers of the miniseries Chernobyl used this as one of their main resources. Higginbotham opens with a look at the entire Soviet system and how it contributed to the disaster. Utterly fascinating! I can't wait to keep reading this one.
Since I last posted, I also started and finished Wonton Terror by Vivien Chien. The murderer was not who I thought it would be. But the actual murderer made far more sense. I'm now debating if I want to binge read the rest of this series in a few months, or pace the books to savor the series.
