Reviews

  • "The definitive book on the quake which killed more than 15,000 people and led to the Fukushima nuclear disaster."

    Mail Online
  • "Every time I think of it, I’m filled with wonderment... This book is a future classic of disaster journalism, up there with John Hersey’s Hiroshima."

    Rachel Cooke, Observer
  • "Mr Lloyd Parry offers a voice to the grieving who, too often, found it hard to be heard. It is a thoughtful lesson to all societies whose first reaction in the face of adversity is to shut down inquiry and cover up the facts. You will not read a finer work of narrative non-fiction this year."

    Economist
  • "A stunning book from the man who has a strong claim to be the most compelling non-fiction writer in the world."

    Johann Hari
  • "A book of absolute, harrowing truth and beauty. I'd give up four of my novels to have written this book."
