Mostly this just really made me want to see the movie.

One of the things I was lamenting to myself about myself as I was reading, though, was "oh Tessa, you should know more history." But by the end of the book, I felt like my ignorance worked for me and for the plot--war is pretty senseless, after all, if you're inside of it.

It was a hard book to read because I am familiar with war. Having served in Somalia, Bosnia, and Haiti, I have to say that it is for a soldier to really forget the sadness that war is. You are right, war is pretty senseless. I will check the film when it comes out on DVD.

Tessa Thank you so much for your perspective, Alex.
