This should have been better than it was, I guess? It was fine. The writing was very nice, actually, as was the setting. But the characters felt absolutely flat to me. I was never invested in any of the narrators, except maaaybe the kid whose dog got shot at the beginning. But that was really it. I also felt like nothing actually happened - I tried to summarize this book to a friend, and pretty much couldn't. "Well, there was this war, and now it's like a few years later, and this one guy lost an arm, and he looks like some other guy, and this one girl is sort of pampered and has bad hair."
