Personal Reaction to Hiroshima First I would like to start my paper off by saying that I read books for two reasons it is required reading for English or it has something to do with poker psychology or cars However there is always a book that I stumble across that makes me enjoy reading books that dont fit in my two criterias Last year it was The Great Gatsby and this year it happened to be the book I read over the summer for history Hiroshima This book interested me because it struck me at many different levels it had emotional appeal it was written in a way that kept me turning the pages and it taught me many lessons about life and its preciousness The first thing I noticed after reading a couple pages of this book was that it had descriptions that were strangely simple but portrayed deep emotions That is one thing Im constantly on the prowl for whenever I read good descriptions that really paint a picture in the readers mind She was grateful until he brought two horrible wounded people-a woman with a whole breast shredded off and a man whose face was all raw from a burn- to share the shed with her33 This sentence on a completely grammatical level looks very simple with very simple sentence structure and vocabulary However when one reads the sentence out loud these simple words clearly draw out the gruesome scene in ones mind and before he or she knows it the image is in full color living and breathing This use of description kept me hooked throughout most of the book Another great tool that John Hersey used to keep the book page turning was the alternating character voices One part would be on Ms Sasaki and the next would be on Dr Fujii and Hersey did a great job of telling the same event through the eyes of different characters
