I found this book intriguing, an out of the ordinary storyline, and excellent writing. I kept my phone dictionary handy and learned some wonderful new words.
I thought ending was somewhat unpredictable but yet realistic and not candy coated. I learned so much about WW1, including the sacrifices made by many.
I have recommended this book to others and beyond me why anyone would give it a one star?
I plan to reread it at a later time just to relish in the author’s remarkable words in describing images. War is hell and this novel is slightly graphic but again realistic in nature.
