Good read

Interesting storyline, very captivating. This book has stood the test of time, and I can see why.

Original spin on a soldier's fate

by on Jul 10, 2008

I read this as it was selected by my book club. It's a totally different book than expected. Unlike "All Quiet on the Western Front," "Storm of Steel," etc., this was so introspective and really makes you think. The writing is original, the flashbacks are good, and I liked the book overall, and thought the length was just about right. This is not a book from which you learn anything about WWI, but it does teach you about what it might be like to have no limbs, sight, or hearing. This soldier won a medal, and had some feeling caregivers, but other than that, it's a pretty bleak prospect for him.

Could you begin to imagine what it would be like to survive a war as the living dead? If you have ever thought being anti-war "anti-American," this book will change your mind. Enter the mind of one man and go on a minute-by-minute journey with him, if you've got the courage.
