I thought this was an excellent book which put names and faces to the people who were and still are greatly impacted by the testing. Another reason I really love the book is that there is so little literature for our youth in Micronesia to identify with. They are able to connect much more easily and readily with this novel than, say, with all of the novels written about young people's lives in the continental U.S. The themes are applicable to any young person in terms of making decisions (and the risks involved with those choices), importance of family and one's culture, etc. As an educator, I have used this novel while working overseas as well as in Micronesia as it provides the opportunity to delve into aspects of WW2 and the testing and use of nuclear/atomic weapons (analysis, evaluation) - and situations which they may not have been aware of. Even our students on Guam were not really aware of the testing within the Micronesian islands, yet it has also affected our island of Guam (residents and ecosystem).

Sorry is a fourteen-year-old boy in the 1940's who lives on the small island of Bikini. When the island found out about the great atomic bombs that were dropped on Japan killing thousands they were dumbfounded. Many weeks later they found out that Bikini had been selected for Operation Crossroads as the new test site for atomic bomb tests. They American's offered the islanders a better island, food, shelter , and would be able to return in a several years. Abram, Sorry's physically and mentally though uncle, knew the destructiveness of the bomb and he didn't want to leave, but the other naive islanders voted to help the American's and move. Before Uncle Abram died, he told Sorry that from their new island he was going to sail back and try and stop the bomb by getting in its way. If you want to find out what happens at the end you'll just have to read it but I wouldn't recommend.
While The Bomb had a good idea for a story it was not written well so I would not recommend it at all. The book just talked about everyday life for almost the whole first half with nothing exciting happening. The end was also not exciting and didn't have a clear message. There was no climax, just a continual story that went nowhere.

Sorry Rinamu was born and raised on the Bikini Atoll. When he was 16, the United States came to Bikini and asked the people to leave so that they could do nuclear testing on the island, promising that they would be able to return at least 2 years later. No one wants to leave, but they trust the Americans and go along with their plan. Sorry knows that he has to stand up to the Americans to save his homeland- even if he has to stand alone. Sorry and his uncle, Abram, believe that they can stop the U.S. from dropping the atom bomb on their homeland. Abram has a plan, but is unable to help Sorry go through with it. After a lot of thought, Sorry decides to carry out his uncle's plan because he knew he had to stand up for what was right. I did not like this book, mostly because of the ending. I also had a hard time remembering the meaning of the words that were in the Bikinian language. In my opinion, the U.S. was not justified in using the Bikini Atoll as a test site for nuclear weapons. They could have chosen a different island, one that wasn't already inhabited.
Bikini is a quaint little atoll in the Northern Marshall Islands. Its people lived peacefully... at least until World War II. Theodore Taylor's book, The Bomb tells the story of a people's struggle during the Second World War. This book excellently portrays the atom bomb's destructive nature, both physically and emotionally, and the problems it caused.

Sorry Rinamu is living on Bikini with his sister, Lokileni, his mother, Ruta, his grandparents, Yolo and Jonjen, and the rest of the small community on this little island. Suddenly, their world turned upside-down.

During the war, the Japanese had taken over Bikini and used it for the location of a weather station while they wreaked havoc. Soon, the Americans captured it from the Japanese, but this proved to be even worse.

This book is amazingly gripping and descriptive. It wonderfully describes the Bikinians' plight with the atom bomb. This adventure novel is one of the best historical fiction books I've ever read.

Theodore Taylor has written many novels, and this one is a great addition to his collection. Believe it or not, he has actually been to, or done many of the things mentioned in his books.

The Bomb is a must-read book for anyone who likes suspense-filled historical fiction. You'll love it!
