I didn't enjoy this book at all, although I did get through it. Edmonton has chosen it as the first book in their "Edmonton Reads" campaign, and I don't think it was a good choice at all. Is war a reality, yes, but does a whole city have to read such a dark novel, with such violent brutality and sexual brutality to comprehend the effects of war?
I couldn't identify or sympathize with the characters at all, and I wish the glossary in the back was somehow pointed out at the beginning, because then maybe more of it would have made sense.
I read a lot - fiction, non-fiction and this was one of my least favourite books of late. Everyone seems to be raving about this book, but it certainly wasn't worth it for me.
