really liked it

i've always made sure that I haven't read a war book even by an accident. after long considerations i decided to read "tuntematon sotilas" (engl. the unknown soldier). this book has gained a cult reputation in finland and in "here" people keep it as a standard that each individual has at least read the book and seen the both filmed versions of it.

one could say that i'm far from war enthustiastic but yet i really liked the book. the thing that struck me most was the fact that all the (famous) war books aren't necessarily an ode to war! plus, this book has all the elements that a proper book needs: good characters, enough thrills and chills, proper dialogue and events that keep you on your toes from first to last page
