The story is one that was needed to be told. I live in Japan and have been to Hiroshima (but not yet Nagasaki). The Peace Park is a place where every leader of every country should visit. It is too bad that every high school student in the world can't make a school trip there. This book can bring that experience to those who can't travel there.
The narration could have been much better. I haven't listened to too many audio books and though I judged the narrator's unemotional and flat tone to be somewhat appropriate for the telling of this story, his poor pronunciation of Japanese words and names was distracting.
