    Although the main plot of the story is interesting and riveting, the book is marred by the lack of research on the topics which the author portrays There is a lot of disinformation about the way the nuclear plant exploded and the how the radiation affected the people This lack of research also extends into the medical treatment of the patients and the injuries and illnesses they experience.

    Somewhat interesting plot and characterizations The details of the disaster are shallow and sometimes lacking Though there are defects in the book it is worth the effort to read as just one of many possible scenarios that would come about during a nuclear disaster I ve read worse.
