it was amazing
Read in August, 2009

So far this is my favorite book in this series. I love how the author made the characters very real and how he was also able to bring World War II to life. I felt I was able to see so many of the changes and various losses this war brought about, but without overly gorey details. I remember my roommate's grandfather was a WWII vet and when Saving Private Ryan came out, he asked that his family not see it. He knew all too well the horrors of that war and felt he fought in it so his family wouldn't have to know just how bad it was. I somehow feel that this book might have been acceptable to him and to those like me who are a little tender hearted.
