Depressing and breathtaking primary source account of the disaster and coverup around the Chernobyl accident. Quite a few books have been written about this at this point, but many of them use this as a resource. For every few pages of physicist technical jargon and difficult-to-grasp theoretical talk - it had me looking at reference books quite often - there are brutal, emotional and quite literary passages detailing the disaster's effects on its victims, the land and the people on it.
