Jacques Roy’s nuanced performance of Higginbotham’s harrowing audiobook keeps listeners deeply engaged. In 1986, the Russian nuclear plant at Chernobyl failed. The result was a disaster of a global scale, with the details surrounding the event unclear until now. Many characters are involved up and down the chain of command—from the technical staff at the plant all the way up to President Gorbachev. Higginbotham’s detailed account of the moment-to-moment events of the disaster are engrossing, including the decisions not to evacuate the surrounding city right away up through eventual plans to seal off the site by any means necessary. Roy’s masterful narration enhances this stark and terrifying account of one of the worst disasters in human history. S.P.C.
