"An intriguing, startling discussion."
-- The Bookwatch, December 2005

"[Mycio's] finely detailed first-person investigation of the ecology of the world's most famous disaster area has a haunting grandeur that should appeal to naturalists and fans of the apocalypse alike."
-- Discover, December 2005

"Wormwood Forest blends reportage, popular science, and encounters with the zone's few residents. The result is an account of a remarkable land, its people and animals seen through the eyes of the locals, the author, and the zoologists, botanists, and radiologists who traveled with her around the zone."
-- Nuclear Engineering International, June 15, 2006
