Read full description of the books:
This was a very interesting book. I greatly enjoyed the main character's eventual development into manhood and the tone of the story. This book handled a tense historical period, and did a good job of inserting fictional characters seamlessly into that world. I thought that the characters were interesting, well developed, and mostly likable. However, while the book is interesting to read, it is also a depressing story. To be fair though, it would be difficult to write about the struggles of war without being somewhat depressing.
I would recommend this book to people who enjoy history, or war, or especially historical fiction. However, there is also value to those who enjoy stories that feature the growing of a boy into a man, and the story has enough action and tension to keep virtually any reader engaged. I would feel comfortable recommending this book to virtually anyone, as it is interesting and because it is a very enlightening read. Finally, I think I would recommend this story to someone who lacks confidence in their own abilities, as this story does feature a boy overcoming his weaknesses and becoming a strong, central character.
Violence: As it is a book that happens in a time of war, there is some violence, but nothing too
Language: Nothing to worry about.
Sex: Nothing to worry about.
Rock and Roll: Nothing to worry about.
