Review: Barefoot Gen: Bones Into Dust

Barefoot Gen: Bones into Dust v. 7 - Nakazawa Keiji

There's so much passionate rage in this seventh volume of the Barefoot Gen series. The narrative is really coming together and losses this late in the story are so much more heartfelt. Though I'm sure there are more struggles in store for Gen, as well as his family and friends, I have hopes that in the last three volumes, trials will be broken up by a growing display of hope and love.
