    1 thought on “Command the Morning

    1. There is something inevitably poignant about the ending. The atomic bomb was meant to be the end of war. And here we are, still at war. Burt wants to forget, Yasuo says he won't. Pearl.S Buck observes humans with language so naked yet vivid it hurts. Not a passionate hurt but a quiet hurt. I wish she were alive today; I would have liked to ask so many questions.

    2. Command in the Morning is a fictionalized account of the making of the atomic bomb. I find that episode to be one of the most fascinating in US history, so I was really looking forward to this book. Unfortunately, I was sorely disappointed. The dialog was incredibly contrived, sometimes laughingly so. The characters were all chauvinistic, which may have been a sign of the times, but it still made it difficult to stomach. I would not have finished the book, but I enjoyed the subject.

    3. This book is about the creation of the atomic bomb after scientist found out how to use the atomic energy, in the beginning of 2nd World War. However, scientists are divided between researching about something that can be a big source of energy and contributing to make a bomb whose ability to destruction they have no idea about.

    4. *Command the Morning* is great historical fiction. Subject: The Manhattan Project (ending with the bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki). Initially, I'm sure many readers have been scared off by the nuclear physics (Transuranic elements, U-235, slow neutrons, fast neutrons). Lots to learn, such as the importance in scientific history of Enrico Fermi. Einstein was the thinker, Fermi who makes it happen.Others may laugh at that 50's style bodice ripper adultery; yet it fits in. Great minds binding [...]

    5. This is a novel about a nuclear bombAnd how scientists were confused to make the nuclear bomb In reality they make it for peace and no more wars But a general used it in a war so They regretted that they had done something terrible 's an amazing novel Greetings to the writerthe most Character I like is "The wife of Stephen Coast" i don"t remamber the name but she was like me in her situation ^^in sum it is great book fareedah

    6. Inhoud:In dit boek beschrijft Pearl Buck de levens van een aantal mannen en vrouwen die op een afgelegen plaats in de Verenigde Staten een geheime staatsopdracht uitvoeren.Er wordt gewerkt aan een allesvernietigend wapen, maar Pearl Buck schrijft over de mensen àchter dit project, over een aantal boeiende karakters tegen de achtergrond van de ware geschiedenis van de ontwikkeling van een wapen, groter dan de mens: de atoombom.Zij voert ons binnen in de woning van Burton Hall, de leider van de g [...]

    7. This is the story of men who built the A-bomb in the early 40’s. she brings to life the urgency of the times—the belief among scientists, many of them good noble men who would never think to do mass harm, that the Nazis were fast apace putting together the ingredients to successfully create a nuclear weapon, and the consequential need to act quickly to build a bomb of our own so that we would not be held at the terrorists’ mercy—and in addition to conveying the intelligent debate and sci [...]

    8. This book was an interesting look at the scientists who developed the atomic bomb. There was a lot that went into it that I had no idea about. It also was interesting that it looked at the point of view of the women in the lives of these scientists. The book did seem very dated, however. The moral issues they wrestled with in connection with the bomb (will we destroy the world?) the roles of the women (You can't be a scientist AND a woman), and the background romance (the men falling in love wit [...]

    9. Em O Amanhecer, os críticos acharam os protagonistas fracos e que as histórias pessoais dos cientistas eram de uma escala totalmente diferente do tema da bomba nuclear. Earl W. Foell queixou-se de que «Os personagens, na maior parte, permanecem inexpressivos ou, quando muito, tornam-se simbólicos.Introduction to Contemporary Literary Criticism of Pearl S. Buckenotes/pearls-buck-cri

    10. I really learn so much history when I read books by Pearl S. Buck. Things it seems I ought to know already, but sadly I don't. This is an interesting look at the scientists behind the atomic bomb - their drive, their lives, their feelings about it all. I really love the way she writes.

    11. Well at least Mrs. Buck is predictable. When ever she writes about americans living in America, she does so poorly. It always comes off as a screen play for a third rate movie. when she sticks to the far east, she is always great.
