This book rocked my socks and I find myself referencing it mentally pretty often.

I gathered from this book that it's not my fault if I'm average.

I would certainly recommend it.

Plus, I really like his writing style.

I think this book changed my life.

I cannot stop thinking about it.

I felt educated without having to read a text book.

I was appalled by the number of deaths that occurred in the Air Force with people not even having been in combat.

I liked how the sto

I'm on board with this book.

I liked how it was a novel so it encompassed a lot of different situations that happened during that time period and to the Lithuanian people.

Um, what do I think....?

Liked it, didn't love it.

I think the one character said it best, they were screwed up, for no apparent reason.

Which, I really just wanted to yell at everyone and say 'Pull yourselves together!'

Not a fan.

I thought the set up was interesting, if not annoying.

Oh my good heavens.

I love Daphne, I do. But this book was laborious.

I could have done without so much description about landscaping I didn't care about.
