This is an interesting account of the effects of the atomic bomb on a small number of residents of the title city. It is an unsympathetic rendering which includes a followup which was added forty years later.

I loved this book. I never imagined that there were people in Hiroshima who survived, yet many did! It is sad and inspiring to read some of their stories; yet there is hope in this book as any one of us could some day face the unthinkable.

This is a non fiction book on Hiroshima and the aftermath of the bomb. I liver there in the 50's and my therefore feel a greater affinity for the bookk. I loved it, it was terrible time and people suffered and many died. This catches the humanity in disastrous aftermath.

I loved this book; to me a book of ordinary heroism and hope. It made me go out and buy other books by John Hersey.
