I would recommend this book to everyone.
The characters came to life, and although this takes place in the 1940s it is a very timely story.
I guess Pug would have to be my favorite because Kevin really conveyed a tough military man with a heart of gold.
I'd want to take Byron, Natalie and their son, Louis out to dinner. They went through so much in WW II and I'd like to hear more.
At the same time I listened to this I was reading Mark Heim's Saved from Sacrifice about our human propensity towards human sacrifice. I was fascintated by Herman Wouk's comments about the war and particularly about the torpedo squadrons in the Battle of Midway. Between the young men dying in battle, and the millions of jews who died in concentration camps we seem to still very much practice human sacrifice.
The two books together made for great material for my Holy Week and Easter sermons.

I really didn't care for the style of this author's writing.
I found the characters very depressing and self absorbed.
Mr. LeDoux read clearly and with good inflection, but I just couldn't enjoy it.
