CHARGE (What was the author trying to say?): She was trying to convey “the domestic community life in the secret Manhattan Project towns.”
FACTS: This book is written in some kind of pluralistic “royal we” voice that is very annoying. What could have been a very interesting story came across as so much drivel. Comparing this to The Atomic City Girls, it fails miserably.
VERDICT (Was the author successful?): Not guilty. This books fails to convey a sense of what were probably very interesting communities.
