A long, long, long time ago, back when I was in high school during the Reagan years, a nuclear power plant exploded in what is now Ukraine, Chernobyl. It was a massive, life changing event. Canned goods, parents putting their kids on iodine pills, cattle had to stay indoors. The nuclear fallout, the actual cloud containing the radioactive toxins, spread all over North-Western Europe, including Amsterdam, the Netherlands where I lived. I was 16 then. I recall my mom sending me to the store to go ...more

Wow, what can I say? I was just kind of floating around looking for something different to read, and I saw a post asking if people would like a ecopy to review this work from the author.

I was not really 100% expecting to, because it is different from what I write, from what I read, but this really caught my attention and dragged me and and would not let go. It has been a long time since I found something that truly ...more

Batshit crazy parable about the dangers of nuclear power, written in 1980's England - and despite the fact that Mrs Empty isn't mentioned once by name, there's no mistaking it. Somewhat dated as a cautionary tale now, although as Fukushima and other places demonstrate, not dated enough.

One of my all time favourite books. I've already lost two of these because I've given them to my friends to read and they've never given them back.
