Read in January, 2003

Perhaps it was the disjointed way in which I read this little novel, a couple of pages at a time, that led me to be un amazed by it or perhaps it was simply unstartling. Never the less in spite of a nice writing style I finished the book with a bit of a ho hum feeling. The story is of a successful Jewish man reflecting on his time during the war and revealing secrets to the family of an enemy he had killed in the South Pacific. It was enjoyable and easy enough to pick up but never really got me involved.
