The Incredible True Story of the Making of the Eve of Destruction At an impending catastrophe But isn’t that his job?Laura’s only real friend is her new stepbrother Terrence She picks him as her plus one and manages to enrage both her fair weather friends and film crew Now the script has to adjust for “another black” But that adjustment is nothing compared to what happens on set after the scripted nuclear explosion Because nobody seems to know if a real nuclear bomb has detonated or not I so wanted to love this book there's so much nuclear nerdery in it I won't say as much as the official blurb does because it mentions an event that takes place nearly at the end of the book So I was reading expecting something to happen and then the big event was so rushed Seriously publishers if an event doesn't happen in the first 100 pages don't put it on the coverLaura wins a radio contest to star in the film and much of it is about the anticipation of Hollywood coming to town The narrative is interspersed with news articles and FEMA instructions in case of nuclear detonation There were great historical details like people painting their houses white because they thought it would deflect the radiation I also know that America had many close calls and it is not absurd to imagine them nuking themselvesI'm really not sure what was going on with the side story of Laura's family Her mother had an affair with black man who she then married so Lauren's step brother is black something she points out a lot Maybe the author wanted to highlight the racism of the time his presence is an inconvenience to the film makers because now they have to justify a black person in the film It just all feels a bit awkwardly insertedAfter the big event happens it came across as a bit flippant I dunno was she trying to make light of a horrible thing? Why did no one notice it was happening? I'm not sure given the circumstances what happened afterwards was very accurate biologically And in the follow up bit there was no mention of any ongoing effects
