Well, everyone was right. Great story. Read many war books before, but this one was great in the way it was written and that it was written by Deaths perspective. When I started the book, I was worried about the excerpts that appeared, but it did not take long for me to enjoy them and look forward to them, as well as the summary/dot points at the beginning of the chapters.
