This is a beautifully rendered and little known roman a clef of the Manhattan Project that deserves to be far better known and appreciated. Better than any non-fiction work on the subject, it captures the moral, intellectual, and emotional reality of experience of the scientists who made the atomic bomb.

I stumbled across the book as I am a big fan of Richard Feynman. I greatly enjoyed it.

I'm not sure why the other reviewer is complaining about a "bait-and-switch". Simply press the "look inside" button and you will see the novel is not even trying to be about nuclear chemistry. It seems like complaining that "To Kill a Mockingbird" is not actually a how-to guide for killing mockingbirds... But in case there is any doubt, this is not a science book, it a novel about a young scientist's life growing up during a fictionalized version of the Manhattan project.

A wonderful novel about scientists, their love of science, Los Alamos, growing up and the nuclear bomb. Just a great book.

Format: Paperback
I don't think i have ever read a worse book. It said it was a novel - but there were 1-1/2 pages on "nuclear chemistry" - my interest, and 243 pages of probably cathartic release about the authors family life. My first hint was when the library said this is a 32 Day book loan period, meaning essentially that there was very low activity on the book. The writer is of very average skill, the descriptions of both life in Oak Ridge and Los Alamos were the high points of interest. Apparently the author needs to tell the world of his teenage sexual development, otherwise there seems to be no point to the book. How it got reprinted as a paperback is beyond me.
