My personal response to this book is that it gets you thinking. The reason I say that is because the author put you in the book and gives you an idea what it would be like to be in the army and gets you thinking like what if your were in war,what would be the reason you're fighting in the war.The book always gets you thinking of what will happen in the next chapter and what will happen to the author .
