Midnight in Chernobyl -- Adam Higginbotham

Staff Pick

Timed perfectly for HBO’s new mini-series, Higginbotham’s book takes you through the catastrophe of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. While it will satisfy your rubbernecking lust for all the inescapably horrific details that are depicted in the miniseries—and the scientific explanations thereof—it will also challenge and reframe the narrative significantly. This book contains a wealth of material left out of the show that adds to your scientific and historical comprehension of the events on the morning of April 26, 1986, in Pripyat.
