So like a lot of people I know I was forced to read this book in High School, so it has been a few years since I read it.

I enjoyed most of the books that my teachers set for me (A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court and this one aside). I hated everything about this book.

The plot was confusing and disjointed, the characters were annoying and bland, the style or writing was in my opinion very fractured and twisted.

There is no doubt that it had potential, a young soldier goes to war, faces lots of terrible things, is raped, burned etc, but it was executed poorly and having read Findley's other works I have come to the conclusion that I am most definitely not his target audience, especially at the age of 17 when I read this book.
