Watch where he steps
Title: Visit Sunny Chernobyl: and other adventures in the world's most polluted places
By: Andrew Blackwell
"Visit Sunny Chernobyl" sounds like an invitation you'd happily refuse. Amazingly, Blackwell manages to make this travelogue of the gruesome darkly entertaining. He neither trivializes horror nor wallows in it. He makes it bearable to consider these sites, and, in so doing, discourages despair. It's a fine fury that drives this book.
