Wow. This book really impacted me while I was reading it. I actually felt a great sadness toward the end of the story, something that rarely happens when I read. The main character is really fleshed out and made interesting, both in his life before the war and after. I liked the flashback method of telling the story. Throughout the whole novel, I was aching to know how Francis ended up how he did, both physically and emotionally. And during the flashbacks, I gradually got more of the whole picture, with a underlying feeling of dread about what was going to happen. Warnings for this book: Descriptions of injuries and death; minor profanity; rape.
