it was ok
bookshelves: book-club, non-fiction, wwii
Read from September 26 to 29, 2011

I am not really even sure what this book was about. She was writing a book about writing a book. And along the way, she interviewed some people about Hiroshima and decided to abandon her family.

I find the author to be very self-centered and hypocritical. When talking about war she emphasizes how she hates destruction. Yet she is destroying her family and their lives back in NY.

I have to say that the ending was better than I expected (which wasn't much), but it certainly didn't make up for the rest of the book. I'm sure this book will make for interesting discussion at book club.
