Publisher's Summary

As the Chernobyl drama TV serie of 2019 marked 33 years since the accident of Chernobyl, the Valerij Zayets prize’s winner and nominee for Pulitzer prize, author Svetlana Kostenko draws a vivid picture of the aftermath of the world most famous nuclear accident. Read below to discover more.

The aftermath of an accident is more perilous than the accident itself.

It proved to be true when everyone witnessed the effects and the political unrest erupted after the explosion of unit 04 at Chernobyl power plant in Pripyat, Soviet Union.

Besides the local population, most parts of Europe also had met with unforgiving consequences of radiation exposure. Crops, lands, soil, animals, and forests, no single ecosystem remained free of it's after effects. How the state responsible for the accident dealt this uncontrollable situation is an account worth investigating.

With her years of deep study and research on Ukrainian and European history, Svetlana Kostenko was able to draw relevant accounts on the aftermath of the Chernobyl disaster.

What actions were taken by the state to contain the worst possible nuclear emergency, and how the negligence of authorities responsible created a more precarious situation.

The world’s response to the devastation is another story worth listening.

The author traveled to many states and studied the real-time effects of radiation exposure and the difficulties faced by the locals. Focus groups, intensive interviews, and online discussions, all helped her to create a consolidated narrative on the aftermath of this nuclear disaster.

Chernobyl: The Dawn After - Apocalyptic Aftermath of a Nuclear Disaster (Vol. II) is a well-written compilation of all the activities carried out after the accident, and it rightly shares the horrendous outcomes of systematic discrepancies within a state.

With great power comes greater responsibility, had the Soviets learned this lesson earlier, the lives of thousands of people would have not been at threat.

The Ending Series is a great read if you enjoy apocalyptic books. Interesting characters who take you through a world that changes overnight for them. A fast paced series with many twists and turns. I highly recommend this series

Loved this series

This 4-part series was phenomenal! The characters were so real, and it really showed a human struggle. I had to take some time between book 3 & 4, and I'm sorry I did because I'm sure I lost some of the meaning by doing so. Well written!

Great character development and slick transition between books. I am hoping someone will make this a series for TV. I can imagine the great characters and plots in my head transitioning to the small screen!

Loved it from start to finish

This entire series from start to finish is my 2nd favorite series EVER! I've read tons and tons of random finds, but again this one is #2 on my list. I will begin reading them AGAIN in the not so far future. :) I do wish they would have had an epilogue that told of the future 5 or so yrs in the future. But oh, well, still loved it.

Wonderful read!!

Loved every minute of it! It was a refreshing take on the apocalypse! I really enjoyed the fact that the characters got powers! The evolvement of the two man characters was an awesome way of show casing the two personalities!

BRAVO!

The whole series was a good read. I found myself wrap up in the story line wondering what would happen next. There were a few twist and turns I couldn't have guessed and characters characteristics that flipped. Sad to see series over. Would have loved to see what abilities the new generation possesses.

Amazing!!!

I was crying while listening about the victims of this disaster, it was such a loss, I didn't know about this incident, chapter six explains about the consequences of this disaster very well.

Aftermath

Good read. No zombies; but a very possible after affect of an emp attack. Giving an example of how egotistical selfish and heartless humans can be when you come down to the nitty gritty

EMP ruins our power grid - a very probable story.

Great entertainment, excellent stories of what an EMP can do to our society. Also, what a loosely protected border can do to our citizens and children of our future.
