Ritter has been reading a lot-- a LOT-- of Cormac McCarthy. That isn't a bad thing, of course; there's some lovely language here, and the back-and-forth parallel narratives of the First World War and later events at home work well. Some of the Southern gothic elements are a bit over the top, however, and you never really get at the protagonist's internal life, why he makes the choices he finally does. I'll look forward to Ritter's second effort.
