really liked it
bookshelves: 2010, fiction, historical-fiction

I enjoyed the book, but kept finding myself being dragged down by all the minute details. I finally realized I could focus more on the characters than the tactics and battles and enjoy it more so that is exactly what I did. I have to imagine a Civil War buff would feel off the charts admiration for this work but that is just not me. It feels like a bit of a victory to have actually finished it.
