Description

The winner of the Scott O'Dell Award, The Bomb is a powerful history lesson and a gripping tale of suspense that no listener will ever forget. In 1946, sixteen-year-old Sorry Rinamu watches as U.S. Navy warships appear off the coast of Bikini Island. The U.S. Government wants to test the deadly power of the atomic bomb-and Sorry's island has been chosen as the test site. The young man knows he must stop the Americans from dropping the bomb-even if it means defying orders from the U.S. Government and risking his own life.

Professional reviews

"It's 1946 and Bikini Island, home to 16-year-old Sorry, is scheduled to be the test site for an atomic bomb. Aware of the effects of radioactive fallout, Sorry realizes that he and his people will never be able to return to the island despite what the Navy officers tell them. He tries to prevent the test even though it means risking his own life. Guidall's interpretation captures the rhythm of island life and the lilt of local speech using subtly differentiated voices. The audio version is more successful than the book; this quiet rendition enhances the drama and horror of the story which is based on actual events. S.S.R. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
