It was a bit generalised at times - 'the military and National Guard were waiting to go in', one of the characters was inveigled to go along, at one stage, there is a piece about a lot of cars stuck on the road out of town, no water, no plan, no food, no heat etc but we are not told how they got on......... having been a first responder for over three decades, it doesn't work like that.
Maybe I was expecting a bit much, it's not bad but no detail equals just two stars, being free to read bumps it up to three stars.
Having lived very near Three Mile Island, I can tell you that a lot of the stuff in this book just didn't ring true. As I was reading the story, the actions of the masses (in the story) was more a reflection of recent things such as the hurricane hitting New Orleans (and how the mass public responded during that disaster).
This book should be updated and re-published. It would make a really awesome read if it were.
Editing, continuity & the message of the book all need a fair bit of work in patches. I do question some of the events such as the earthquake which caused the catastrophe, however, the author gets the message of the story across. And if she doesn't, well just google "Fukishima" and then maybe you will understand the warnings in this book.
With some work, this could be a great story.
