really liked it
bookshelves: audio-book, war-military
Read from June 01 to 11, 2012

This is a very cynical, humorous and touching look at how we view our heroes as a commodity and at how these young men react to their obligations. The one day time period and punchy dialogue make it very interesting. I can so see this as a movie, which makes it all even more ironic due to the whole movie-making theme in the book. Audio was great.
