Growing up during the 80s and the final stages of the cold war I remember many big defining stories in the 80s and early 90s Reagan vs Gorbachev The arms race The fall of the Berlin Wall But probably the biggest event with the longest lasting impact is the Chernobyl disasterWhile the Berlin Wall falling was a big deal and has had a lasting impact on the political climate in Europe there are very few remaining sections some memorials but any lasting visible impact is mainly relegated to history books and museums Chernobyl on the other hand has led to thousands of suare miles of land that are still uninhabitable to this day and will be for decades to come Entire shells of cities crumbling barley touched since the hours after the event A gigantic metal and concrete sarcophagus concealing rubble that is too hot to move or cleanup and sits concealed as it was just moments after the reactor was destroyedMidnight in Chernobyl is the story of that fateful night and the months afterward I have always been very interested in learning about this event and was excited to finally read this It has me even intrigued to watch the recent HBO mini series I learned so much from this book and now it is much than just stark pictures online and a footnote from my childhoodTwo things to be aware of going in if you are interested in checking this out First it does get very technical and scientific at times This may interest you or you may just need to push through it and say okay yeah nuclear science stuff okay got it Second there are LOTS of characters so there are LOTS of Russian names This can be difficult to keep track of There is a list of these at the beginning to help you keep track but the list is pretty daunting tooIf you like history remember this from your childhood and want to know or a big fan of disaster booksmovies this book is 100% worth checking out

Riveting horrifying absolutely STELLAR reporting I have always been fascinated in horror at the Chernobyl disaster and this book was JUST what I needed to wrap my mind around it The only criticism I can possibly think of is that I would have loved even MORE pictures but I was able to find tons on The Atlantic and Nat Geo and Time online to fulfill my need for visual confirmation What I found even fascinating about this account than the many articles I had read previously was the detailed analysis of the role that the Soviet culture and politics played in the cause of the disaster and the impact that disaster had on the downfall of the Soviet empireI can t recommend this book highly enough FYI I have zero background knowledge of nuclear science whatsoever and was able to grasp enough in this book to understand what happened Also don t let the size intimidate you almost a 14 of the book is endnotes

Having read several books on this catastrophe I was tempted yet again to learn about the disaster which affected directly among others my country to a still unknown degree The Midnight in Chernobyl is one of the best non fiction that you can read in order to obtain the most insightful and detailed account into the reasons behind the explosion but it offers The Author tells the story of the nuclear ambitions during the communist era in the USSR describes the building process of both the reactors and the dream like city for the employees and their families gives thorough minute after minute chronicle of the fateful night of April 25 1986 and reports on the cleaning up process I was as always shaken by the way the disaster impacted the lives of hundreds of thousands of ordinary people both civilians and those who were liuidators If you know little about what happened in Chernobyl on that night I recommend this title
