it was amazing

This is my favorite book of all time. Unfortunately it hasn't had the recognition it deserves yet, but it is by far my favorite book. The way the author carries you along with the character by writing in First Person, Present Tense makes following a soldier in The Napoleonic Wars truly exciting. The main characters constant optimism keeps the book from depressing you as the story is constantly worsening for the poor 16 year old Soldier. The other most interesting thing about this book is that the author is actually not English so the writing has a foreign speaker feeling to it. The translation is great and understandable, but because its translated it has a simple English that gives it an ease of reading. You should definitely read this book!
