I don't like war - or death - or the fact that we are in Iraq. However, all politics aside, this is a well thought-out piece of writing. At first, I was thrown for a loop switching back and forth between the father's words, the son's journal entries, emails from many people, and then comments/conversations about the emails and journal entries. But then I realized - communication through reflection - internal and external - is how we participate in the "Great Conversation." If the book had been written without any of these, it wouldn't have been as contemplative or complete as this one is. A good, difficult read.
