The continuing story of Gen and his family is heartbreaking but never despondent. If you appreciate manga, this story will really bring home the reality of everyday life in Japan after the war and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. ( )

Similar to volume 2, this is an important book to have read, but that's not the same as it being a good book. (I read volumes 2 & 3 back-to-back, so much of my thoughts on volume 2 apply to volume 3, as well.) ( )

This volume (#3 of 10 in the manga series) recounts six-year-old Gen’s experiences during the first weeks after the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Terrible famine, fear and illness surround him still, but there are new human connections too, and a lovely reveal about how he came to be an artist. For me, it’s the best yet in the series. ( )
