Having 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 later novels That is the only reason this book did not rate a 5 stars from me
