This book, the result of five years of research, presents an accessible but comprehensive account of what really happened - from the desperate fight to prevent a burning reactor core from irradiating eastern Europe, to the self-sacrifice of the heroic men who entered fields of radiation so strong that machines wouldn't work, to the surprising truth about the legendary "Chernobyl diver", all the way through to the USSR's final show-trial. The historical narrative is interwoven with a story of the author's own spontaneous journey to Ukraine's still-abandoned city of Pripyat and the wider Chernobyl Zone.

Another account of the Chernobyl disaster
I'm very interested in this topic, and I've read quite a few accounts about the Chernobyl disaster over the years, and this is just another one. The author knows a lot about the topic, and I liked his style of writing. After listening to this book, you definitely know the basics about this topic.
However, I didn't like the personal impressions of the author visiting the site in the 2011 or so. This gives the book a very personal touch, and some impressions are very interesting to read, but they take up half of the book, since very second chapter is dedicated for this.
