did not like it

Sites claims his book and blog are not "war porn," but I felt icky after skipping from Congo to Iraq to Sudan to Somalia in 100 pages. Lots of vignettes, very little context. His stories from Iraq are more compelling and personal, because he spent longer there reporting for the network news, but the globetrotting war blogging stuff is just shallow and sensational. He's also a pretty weak writer.
