Excellent-Interesting

I never heard of this author but am really glad I downloaded it. The only way I can think to describe it is; a light but compelling mystery. It isn't a page turner, but I couldn't put down.It is Defiantly worth using credit!

An intriguing tale set in the Ukraine

What made the experience of listening to The Boy from Reactor 4 the most enjoyable?

The plot, characters, and setting were all well developed. This story clips along at a good pace and while you are reading it you are also learning a bit here and there about the Ukraine -- including a visit to devastated Chernobyl.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The lead character -- unlike so many leads-- she's not perfect -- but she's worth getting to know -- and she learns and grows.

What does Tanya Eby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I really enjoyed the "3-D" effect of reading and listening. It made the book alive for me -- and it clips along faster. I set the narration at 2x and it worked well for me. The narrator knew the pronunciations for the Ukrainian words -- which were delightful to hear, and also prevented me from getting "stuck" on them.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Characters living near Chernobyl. Well drawn and very sympathetic.

Any additional comments?

A good read.
