I found the story to be engaging and thought provoking, giving a new viewpoint to the atomic weapons program during the war. The characters were well developed and I cared about them. I would have given this book 4 stars had it not been for the final chapter. The story made a point and stood on its own, without the railing against all things nuclear at the end. To me, this tarnished the memory of the story I'd just read.
