ATOMIC ADVENTURES Secret Islands, Forgotten N-Rays, and Isotopic Murder; A Journey into the Wild World of Nuclear Science

by | Read by Keith Sellon-Wright

Contemporary Culture • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Remember the cold fusion brouhaha back in 1989? That scientific debacle, in which the author played a part, is only one episode in this collection of stories about atomic research gone wrong--and occasionally right. The writing is crisp and engaging, and through well-paced modulation and comfort with challenging vocabulary, narrator Keith Sellon-Wright captures Mahaffey's obvious passion for his subject matter. While reflecting the gravity of many situations in atomic history, Sellon-Wright also adds a measured tone of incredulity to the surprising humorous moments. Mahaffey's fans will enjoy this wonderful pairing of author and narrator. C.M.A. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2017]
