If you haven't already guessed from the title, this short and easy read is a journalistic account of one of the most horrific events in human history- the dropping of the atom bomb on Hiroshima in Japan. The book chronicles the events experienced by an assortment of Japanese citizens as a result of the bomb. This book gives a graphic description of an event that everyone should be familiar with. While this book's imagery may not be pleasant to read, it is, in my opinion, a book that one needs to read.
