Arvustused

"Superb, enthralling and necessarily terrifying . . . the accident unfurls with a horrible inevitability. Weaving together the experiences of those who were there that night, Higginbotham marshals the details so meticulously that every step feels spring-loaded with tension. . . . Amid so much rich reporting and scrupulous analysis, some major themes emerge. . . . Higginbotham's extraordinary book is another advance in the long struggle to fill in some of the gaps, bringing much of what was hidden into the light." * New York Times * "An invaluable contribution to history... tells a compelling story exceptionally well." -- Serhii Plokhy * Evening Standard * "Higginbotham tells the story of the disaster and its gruesome aftermath with thriller-like flair. Midnight in Chernobyl is wonderful and chilling ... written with skill and passion. A tale of hubris and doomed ambition." -- Luke Harding * The Observer * "Adam Higginbotham uses all of the techniques of the top-notch longform journalist to full effect. He swoops us into the heart of the catastrophe." -- Oliver Bullough * The Guardian * "Utterly gripping and superbly researched... Higginbotham shows brilliantly how the tragedy contributed to the collapse of the whole Soviet system that had created it." * BBC History Magazine *
