Does anyone else agree this book deserves a better page? I mean, I'll write up a new section for each character, and further info.
Yes it needs to have more onfo in it.
Added in the information for the book itself.

Fair use rationale for Image:Hiroshima.jpg
Image:Hiroshima.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Novel? Or Non-Fiction?
Is the book, and the New Yorker article, a novel, or is it non-fiction? Conventional meanings of these terms suggest that it cannot be both. According to Wikipedia's article on Fiction, "fictionality and the presentation in a narrative are the two features most commonly invoked to distinguish novels from histories." Hiroshima is a narrative, but, if the characters are real, this is not a novel unless Hersey took significant artistic license in writing about these characters. This issue needs to be cleaned up.
