The stories that the world needs to hear!

I had to read this as a primary source for a research paper in college. It broke my heart and made me understand Chernobyl on a much deeper and more personal level. Haunting and devastating but these voices deserve to be heard. The forgotten world of Chernobyl, the lost stories holding the truth we were never told, the silenced voices given life again. This book deserves to be read! Thank you to the author for telling these stories! Five of the saddest stars ever given

An inescapable truth

I recently watched the HBOMax mini series “Chernobyl” and hesitated to read this book fearing I’d be bored - NOT AT ALL! The stories in this book were far more gripping and soul shattering than any portrayal could ever do justice. Strap in for a seriously macabre journey that will leave you with more questions than you started with.
