Hiroshima, written by John Hersey, is an exciting and informative first-hand account of the
dropping of the atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Hiroshima tells the stories of six
survivors of the A-bomb. It is written in a journalistic style. Even though the author does not
add any of his own emotions to the book, it never gets boring.
