Read in January, 2011

Lovely writing. He played with the chronology as a way to structure the book. (Think of The God of Small Things.) As a writer, I'm intrigued when I come across this, but at the end of the book, I'm usually left wondering what was gained by not telling it straight-forwardly. If he'd given Henri the last chapter, Henri after Chickamauga that is, it would have worked. But four stars--how bad can that be? Highly recommended.
