    Normally I’m not a huge fan of nonfiction books, but this book was interesting and absorbing. I am also impressed with the author for finding so many quotes to make the book’s characters more realistic and vivid. Big fan of this book… also the last book on the list that i read- YAYY I READ THEM ALL :D Definitely a good way to end with a ‘bang’… Haha, get it, cause it’s about bombs…

    This book is one of the most informative I’ve ever read. The author tells you everything there is to know about the making of the atomic bomb.My favorite part of this book is how the author clearly states that any nuclear war would have major repercussions. I reccomend it for anybody interested in history or science.

    This book made me want to read again, it was a mystery and an action book about World War 2. This book showed me the struggles throughout World War 2. This book was about the courage to make the firsrt atomic bomb. In this book it showed that you have to make something quickly and correctly or you would die by your enemy. If you like suspenseful historicol fiction read this book.

    I really want to read this book! It is not in my library but I want to get it somehow! It seems interesting by the comments above! I am so excited!

    You might want to ask your librarian about borrowing it from another library on interlibrary loan. Kate Davie

    This book was very good. It was action packed. This guy in the book was an under cover spy and went in to a military compound and got information on the nuclear missile they were building. It was a very good book

    I think the book Bomb is extremely exciting and is a good read and beneficial to read. It is exciting and you do not know what is going to happen next. I feel it is a great book for young and old. It is an excellent read for people who like spies and war. There is always a feeling of suspense throughout the book. I think this book is also a little education about the events being talked about. It also states multiple historic events throughout the course of the book.

    I found Bomb a very interesting book because it is full of historic events around World War II. I thought this book has neat facts about what happened to create the atomic bomb. While I was reading this book it could be suspenseful or easy-going. I recommend this book for people who are into history or just want to learn something about these events in World War II.

    This book sounds exactly like The Green Glass Sea, But that book was published like 10 yeas ago

    It’s true that both books are about the Manhattan Project, but The Green Glass Sea was fiction,and told from the point of view of one fictional character. This title is nonfiction, and takes a much more comprehensive view. Kate Davie

    It was a little sad, but I liked it. It definitely won’t win my vote, but I think a lot of people really like it.

    This book is amazing!!!!!!! While you read it you can’t believe it’s fiction. I usually hate non-fiction but this is different. I can’t explain it more than that, you just have to trust me.

    I read almost 20 pages, but I didn’t really like it. It is long and hard and I thought it was boring and overrated. I think it should not be part the DCF list.

    Well, no book is for everybody! If you would like to make suggestions for next year’s list, please visit the DCF web site, there is a place there for students to nominate books to the list. Kate Davie

    This book was written very well. A lot of times biographies are boring, but Steve Sheinkin turned it into an adventure book!

    A really good book!

    What was the best part? Kate Davie

    I really want to read this book but never have time to read something. Bomb looks like a really good book but like I said never have time! The reason I can’t is because of my homework!

    How about reading a little bit every day while you are flossing your teeth? Or, persuade a teacher (English OR history) to give you extra credit for reading it. Then it will have the priority of homework! Kate Davie
