really liked it
Read in April, 2009

I'd never have read this if it hadn't been a book group pick, but I'm glad I did. It was beautifully written, which, alas, isn't something I usually notice. The story -- about WWI trench warfare and a group of Irish soldiers fighting on the front while their families fought political battles at home -- didn't really grip me, but that's because I'm a philistine. The cover is pretty, and I matched my living room paint to the yellow.
