¿ Mr Two Bomb Ø Download by ¿ William Coles Read for Book Group.
This was one of my choices for book group, as I had thought it was an autobiography It is, instead, a sort of amalgamated made up memoir, based loosely on some real stories, but also made up I think that I would have preferred the real story, even if it hadn t been as neat as this one.
I struggled with the writing style to begin with, as the sentences are quite simple and bare and direct I got into the swing of things further into the book, but still, occasionally, it grated I also found parts of the story repetitive, and a little slow I love Japan, and so I found the descriptions of the bomb, what happened afterwards, and how people suffered horrifying I feel like all of us, all over the world, should know about what happened, so that it never happens ever again.
Mr Two Bomb s relationship with the girl is the be Compellingly Vivid, The Most Sustained Description Of Apocalypse Since Robert Harris S Pompeii The Financial Times One Man Miraculously Survives The Atomic Bomb Of Hiroshima Two Days Later He Catches The Last Train Home Home To Nagasaki He Arrives Just Minutes Before The World S Second Atomic Bomb Explodes Into His Life As He Battles Through The Scene Of Apocalyptic Destruction, Surrounded By Unthinkable Suffering, He Is Plagued By One Constant Question Is He Lucky, Or Unlucky This Is His Answer He S The Luckiest Man Alive Good book I really enjoyed it An absolutely amazing book The storytelling was superb and you would be forgiven for thinking that this story was written from a first hand perspective I learnt so much from this book and I cannot even try to comprehend what these people went through And the best part about this story The takeaway phrase Embrace Life.

Mr Two Bomb s relationship with the girl is the be A very emotional story that vividly depicts the devastating effects of nuclear power Although horrifying, these events must remain active in our minds to prevent reoccurrence I had thought and hoped that this book was an autobiography but was not disappointed by the way William Cole presented his novel.

Brilliant novel that was the most vivid description of the devastation wreaked by the bombs dropped at the end of the war This is apparently the amalgamation of several people s memory of the events Certainly will stay in my memory to show the stupidity of war.
Book group book for August 2018 This was a wonderful book, a truly touching story based on real events I really appreciated the fact that the protagonist was not made out to be a heroic saint, he had real reactions to the events that occurred.
Mr Two Bomb is the memoir of an unfortunate Japanese man, who after surviving the first nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima, decided to change his life and make amends with his estranged wife, who lived in Nagasaki He was in Nagasaki for less than 2 hrs before he noticed bombers perform the exact same maneuver as in Hiroshima He recognized that this portended another atomic bomb blast He had time to take cover behind a stone wall, but he could not convince his wife in time There are many profound insights in this book the most significant being the realization of the blessing of life and its correlate, redemption Another is that many of our decisions are utterly inconsequential the clothes we wear, the way we walk to work, if we take tea break near a windo Harrowing but rewarding A story of a man who survived 2 atomic bombs Hiroshima and Nagasaki This isn t a book you can enjoy it contains too much human suffering However it is well written and compulsive, and very educational for those of us who didn t experience WWII Above all, this book is life affirming and a thoroughly recommended read It will live on in your mind.
I first came across this story in America in 1998 A friend, Butcher, had interviewed one of the few people to have survived both atomic bombs I was quite captivated by the story Imagine surviving the first bomb in Hiroshima and then going back home to Nagasaki to get immediately hit by the second one Would that mean you were lucky or unlucky I spent some time researching the story At first I was thinking of doing it as a biography of perhaps the dozen men who d survived both bombs But although some interesting things had happened to these men, there was nothing really to hang a whole book on.
So the project fell into abeyance for a while, and then I suddenly realised how it could work It would be a piece of fiction with just one guy And we would pin all the best bits of all the stories onto him.
All I needed A man survives the atom bomb dropped on Hiroshima, drags himself out of the flattened and burned out city to travel to Nagasaki, just in time for the second atomic bomb He survives this too, and asks himself if he s really lucky, or really unlucky Apparently there were people who survived both, and this tale draws a picture of what it must have been like.
A tale of redemption, chance and human nature along the way uncovering a little about what Japan was like at the time, a little about the attitude of America, the propaganda on both sides for example Japan convincing its own citizens that they were going to win the war, America about covering up the nature of radiation poisoning and of course the gruesome nature of these bombs Good book I really enjoyed it
