My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Never has World War II been looked at in quite this way! Journey into the world of secrecy that surrounded the building and testing of the first atomic bomb, and discover the women that each played a part in bringing it to life. It reads as easily as fiction but holds the stunning truths of nonfiction, and connects us with our past and reminds us of where we might be headed in the future. The only part I didn't enjoy as much were the "commercial interruptions" between the true meat of the story - while I understand why the author included them, they were more of a nuisance to me than something enjoyable. Overall this is a great look at our history in a surprisingly easy to read format!
