Keiji Nakazawa survived the A-bomb attack in Hiroshima when he was six years old. This manga tells of a realistic fiction story about his and his family's life through the character Gen and what happened during the mid 1900s. I read it all in one day because it had captured my attention so intensely that I almost missed my train stop and walked into a pole. While reading, you will feel so many emotions - happiness, anger, endurance, defeat, hope, etc. A definite recommended read.
