All That Is Solid Melts Into Air

All That Is Solid Melts Into Air - Darragh McKeon What an impressive first novel this is! Hard to believe that this isn't written by a seasoned author. Mr. McKeon definitely knows how to pull you into a story and how to tie your heart around his characters.

It's not an easy book to read. The story is a dismal one but I believe it's a necessary one to remind us of how each day we face the destruction of our planet by our own hand. It's hard to absorb the magnitude of this disaster.

The book also delves into what was happening in the Soviet Union politically during the time of the Chernobyl disaster and the effects on its citizens. The author has created a compelling story which becomes quite suspenseful towards the end. The book is beautifully written and is one that won't be forgotten soon. I'm looking forward to more of Darragh McKeon's work.
