    ePUB Martin Booth ¸ Hiroshima Joe PDF ´ ¸ hiroshima free, Hiroshima Joe PDFThis book is what reading is all about From a Japanese civilian who at great risk helped Allied POW's in a camp outside of Hiroshima whose son died a drafted kamikaze and whose wife in the Hiroshima bombing Joe he said I am sorry for what my people did to you and your people; just as you will one day be sorry for what your allies the Americans did to the Japanese people Never forget that it is men who are mad not nations Men make wars Nations do not Leaders do who need never fight but send others to die Politicians are the corrupt ones They decide but it is we the common men the innocent people of the race who act for them And suffer in their place How blind and stupid and hateful and arrogant we remain How we relish the fear

    ePUB Martin Booth ¸ Hiroshima Joe PDF ´ ¸ hiroshima free, Hiroshima Joe PDFIt took 3 attempts to read Hiroshima Joe My persistence paid off as once I got into the main character Joe Sandringham and the rich descriptions of Hong Kong in the '40s and '50s I was compelled to keep on readingI thoroughly enjoyed this book not only as a former resident of Colonial Hong Kong but also as a history enthusiast

    ePUB Martin Booth ¸ Hiroshima Joe PDF ´ ¸ hiroshima free, Hiroshima Joe PDFHaving been very moved by 'Industry of Souls' and 'Adrift in the Oceans of Mercy' both books by Martin Booth I tracked down a copy of 'Hiroshima Joe' on the internet I found the writing and content of the book very good if rather harrowing Martin Booth writes with great sensitivity and humanity about the bond that can form amongst people during extreme hardship and the after effects of war on ordinary citizens The story is set between Hong Kong in the 1950's and Japanese prisoner of war camps both in Hong Kong and the outskirts of Hiroshima during the second world war My only criticism of the book is there is a lot of to my mind unnecessary geographical detail describing the streets of Hong Kong in the early stages of the book I know that Martin Booth spent his childhood there and it was as though he was reliving the streets of his childhood this was one of his earlier books so perhaps his sense of timing and plot development was not uite as sophisticated as his late

    ePUB Martin Booth ¸ Hiroshima Joe PDF ´ ¸ hiroshima free, Hiroshima Joe PDFA talented writer beautiful color and descriptions I picked up the novel because it takes place around East Asia where I lived for than a decade So the topic is close to my heart The magic breaks when he moves into topics he doesn't always understand well Gay men do not lust after boys any than straight men lust after underage girls A plot twist probably meant to be dark and creepy came off worse ugly and repulsive His descriptions of life in Hong Kong were wonderfully evocative accurate and felt right on the mark But descriptions of life in Japan left me feeling he hadn't actually met many Japanese people Trust me ritual suicide is pretty rare But I stuck to the novel until the end not because I liked the characters The beauty of his writing and curiosity about how he'd take on historical events kept me reading

    ePUB Martin Booth ¸ Hiroshima Joe PDF ´ ¸ hiroshima free, Hiroshima Joe PDFHiroshima Joe is a great achievement in historical fiction which while following the story of one fascinating man ties together the fall of Hong Kong Japanese POW camps the destruction of Hiroshima post war Hong Kong and opium addiction However It is also a deeply engaging personal story of pain survival love and dignity The author manages to pull off a sometimes difficult structure where each chapter alternates between wartime and post war events in the life of the main character

    ePUB Martin Booth ¸ Hiroshima Joe PDF ´ ¸ hiroshima free, Hiroshima Joe PDFOne of my all time favorite book From the last days of the battle for Hong Kong in December of 1941 to the POW camps first in Hong Kong and later in Japan to 1951 Hong Kong we follow the story of Joe and how the war effected himRecommend reading Booth's 'Golden Boy' which goes hand and hand with this
