From the hidden bars and convenience stores of a radioactive wilderness to the sacred but reeking waters of India, Visit Sunny Chernobyl fuses immersive first-person reporting with satire and analysis, making the case that it’s time to start appreciating our planet as it is - not as we wish it would be. Irreverent and reflective, the book is a love letter to our biosphere’s most tainted, most degraded ecosystems, and a measured consideration of what they mean for us.
Equal parts travelogue, expose, environmental memoir, and faux guidebook, Blackwell careens through a rogue’s gallery of environmental disaster areas in search of the worst the world has to offer - and approaches a deeper understanding of what’s really happening to our planet in the process.

Better than I predicted
When I saw this book, I was expecting a 10 hour lecture on how humans have destroyed the planet and how we need to run out and hug a tree. This wasn't the case at all. The author presented Chernobyl and other locations as if they were attractions worthy of a tourism pamplet at a travel center. Each location was presented in a thought provoking, descriptive and very entertaining way. It wasn't the GREATEST book I have ever listened to, but it sure was worth the time and money.

Has little to do with reality
Would you try another book from Andrew Blackwell and/or Ax Norman?
No because these authors are bias. They are admittedly die hard environmentalists with no regard for the benefits of all types of energy except for tree hugger versions
Not fair and balanced at all
How could the performance have been better?
Yes the narrator was boring
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
All references to the Cernobyl disaster are copied text from other reference books
