  • This book is based on a simple but brilliant idea: to hang out in the most polluted and toxic places on the planet. Well it’s a brilliant idea for a book at any rate, if not a holiday

    Mail on Sunday
  • [Andrew Blackwell] has seen the worst we can do to ourselves, met the best of us trying to repair the damage, and discovered – mystifyingly at times – beauty in the planetary dark side

    Iain Finlayson, The Times
  • This is one of the best concepts for a non-fiction book I have come across in some time ... There is a great deal of acute observation, proper thinking and challenging material in each of the journeys

    Stuart Kelly, Scotland on Sunday
  • An essential read. A very funny - and very disturbing - look at some parts of our world that need to be acknowledged. Visit Sunny Chernobyl is my new favorite guidebook to some places I admit to have visited

    Peter Greenburg, Travel Editor, CBS News
  • A certain amount of depression and anger does result from reading Andrew Blackwell’s Visit Sunny Chernobyl, but Blackwell is such a good and amusing travel writer, such an engaging companion around the awfulness, that you’ll also come away somewhat entertained

    Doug Johnstone, The Big Issue
