's review

it was amazing

This is the second time I have read this book and it was thoroughly enjoyed again. By the way, I normally dislike war novels, but this one, just affects me.

My book club all agreed it was a great book and it had all of us thinking deeply about how war affected the soldiers and their families. It makes you realise just how horrifying and futile the war was (in this case Australians in WW1) , and makes you want to find out more. There are some WTF moments, it's hard to believe, a young man can volunteer and then be treated so badly, that all his heroic past can no longer matter. And it leaves you wanting more for this man, all the way through, did happiness elude him or did he make it home?
