Full of mis-scanned words, lacking logical breaks, preceded by a preface in tiny type that cannot be changed - this book was a disappointment. This was a second reading for me - but the nook edition was difficult to navigate. Thanks to John Hersey for recording the story of the 1945 bombing at Hiroshima, but no thanks to the publisher.
