- “Readers come face-to-face with the senselessness of the sudden collapse of an entire village, and yet surely will be moved by the efforts of its residents to never give up. It remains to be seen what will become of Iitate, but it seems safe to say that Kenichi Hasegawa will never stop fighting for it.” –Amazon.co.jp user review (5 stars)
- “The suffering of the victims can never be adequately conveyed in words because theirs is a pain that cannot be understood by those who have not experienced it. Nevertheless, by all means, read this book. And then compare it to the information you read in magazines and newspapers, and to what you see on TV. As a former resident of Iitate myself, I can say with conviction that what is written here is true. And I want the world to know the truth about the suppression of information by those responsible for this disaster, and the unilateral pressure that they continue to exert to this day.” –Amazon.co.jp user review (5 stars)
- “This book's message is different from the scientific, intellectual messages of anti-nuclear scholars and activists. What is conveyed here is the anger of the devastated victims of nuclear power. I would like to express my sincere respect for Kenichi Hasegawa, for his actions and his leadership....This is a must-read book for anyone who has benefited from Fukushima's nuclear power, particularly city dwellers, politicians, and bureaucrats.” –Amazon.co.jp user review (5 stars)
- “If the individuals affected by the Fukushima nuclear accident do not share their thoughts and their suffering, the severity of the accident will not be communicated to those who, like me, haven't got a clue. The victims of this disaster may be pained to recall their hardships, but by doing so, they just might help to ensure that more people do not suffer the same fate in the future. So please, keep speaking, keep writing.” –Amazon.co.jp user review (4 stars)
- “Must-read! Thank you for writing this. That’s all I can say….It is impossible to read this book without weeping.” –Rakuten.co.jp user review (5 stars)
