Bomb: The Race to Build--and Steal--the World's Most Dangerous Weapon by Steve Sheinkin

Reviewed By: A.T.
Ever wonder about the bomb that stopped World War II?? I hadn't until I picked up this book. The history is well laid out, easy to understand, and completely fascinating! You follow the process of building the bomb, from 1938 when German scientists first discovered how to split a Uranium atom, all the way to it's completion at Los Alamos. There are secret missions, spies from everywhere, and the fate of the free world hanging in the balance! If you thought history was boring, then think again!
Why I Picked it Up:It is a 2015 Caudill nominee and it came highly recommended.
Why I Finished It:It was un-put-downable! I had to make up that word to describe how awesome this book is! I love spies and mystery, especially when I know how everything turned out in the end. It was also interesting to learn about how things almost weren't!
I’d Give this Book To:Anyone who is interested in science, history, military history, loves a good mystery, and loves suspense!
