    Last Train from Hiroshima offers listeners a stunning "you are there" time capsule, gracefully wrapped in elegant prose. Charles Pellegrino's scientific authority and close relationship with the A-bomb's survivors make his account the most gripping and authoritative ever written. At the narrative's core are eyewitness accounts of those who experienced the atomic explosions firsthand---the Japanese civilians on the ground and the American fliers in the air.

    Overall

    The short trailer provided is a good example of the entire book. For many years I've heard and read about the Atomic Bombs but everything was about the development and use of them. I've always wondered what it was like on the "Other Side" of the explosions. This book was so incredibly written that it answered all of my questions and more and it should be stated that the author takes no stand on the "Right or Wrong" of the use of these weapons. I'm 55 (European-American) and my best friend is 62 (Japanese-American), we listened to it together. We both agree that the knowledge absorbed by hearing what really happened literally changed us - for the better. This book should be included in any teaching of the history of World War II and it's final conclusion. What the people experienced that day transcends Race or Social perspective. I have no experience to compare to how this book made me feel. Let's all pray for peace.
