Voices From Chernobyl is the first book to present personal accounts of what happened on April 26, 1986, when the worst nuclear reactor accident in history contaminated as much as three quarters of Europe. Svetlana Alexievich--a journalist who now suffers from an immune deficiency developed while researching this book--interviewed hundreds of people affected by the meltdown.

"And basically I found out that the frightening things in life happen quietly and naturally." - Zoya Bruk, environmental inspector

It's difficult to give praise to a book about such devastation, but it deserves praise nonetheless. Even in translation (from the original Russian), the accounts are rendered such that you, as a reader, feel you are sitting in each person's living room, listening to what they have to say about the events. Nearly every single section, fraught with a panoply of thought and emotion, moved me. Most striking, to me, were 2 things: (1) No one knew what radiation was--they were mystified by the presence of something they could not see or feel; and (2) so many people were so attached to their home that they stayed in the contaminated environs regardless of what they heard or saw. So many of the voices in this book echo the same intense identification with their soil and also the Party (Soviet Union Communist Party) that you get a glimpse of the Soviet character of the time.

This one took me a while to get through, I think in part because it is not a novel, but rather a series of monologues. Spoken by individuals who lived the Chernobyl disaster zone at the time of the accident, as well as people who moved to the area after the incident, it was a chilling tale that felt like science fiction. I learned a lot - for example, I learned that refugees are moving to Chernobyl because it's practically abandoned and no one will kick them out. I learned more about what the effects of living in a radioactive zone. One eerie thing about this book is that in some ways I felt like I was reading about life during quarantine - we are not in an active war, but everything feels dangerous and people are still dying. There is a fear of going out and living life, but at the same time, life must be lived and sometimes we forget about what's going on in the larger scheme of things, and just have our own interactions with our community as if nothing ever happened.

It was the final line of the book that really gave me chills, though. The author was speaking about how many nuclear bombs and reactors exists around the world, and how technically this book is about history, but, she notes, "I felt like I was recording the future." ( )

I avoided this book for quite a while after buying it, because I was sure that reading it would be intensely painful. It was.

This book opens with its most gut-wrenching oral history. I was reading this book outside and sobbing in my lawn chair. When I finally came back into the house I was a mess. This is a collection of oral histories, presented without comment or context, but arranged loosely according to time, different ways and types of people affected by Chernobyl, etc. I kept thinking I wished I had watched the new documentary first, or had more context going in, but of course it isn't necessary, as these are the stories of people who lived through it -- most of whom were never told what was really going on, but had to piece things together over months and years.

Yes, an intensely painful read at times, but also an incredible work that I'm grateful we have. ( )

Don't write about the wonders of Soviet heroism. They existed—and they really were wonders. But first there had to be incompetence, negligence, and only after those did you get wonders: covering the embrasure, throwing yourself in front of a machine gun. But that those orders should never have been, that there shouldn't have been any need, no one writes about that. They flung us there, like sand onto the reactor. Every day they'd put out a new "Action Update": "men are working courageously and selflessly," "we will survive and triumph."

They gave me a medal and one thousand rubles.
