Top five out of hundreds.
As a veteran, I am already familiar with the subject matter. I love the way the author reveal the inner struggles of a soldier in a way where civilians can understand some effects of war.
I appreciate the fact that the author didn't paint a picture of living happily ever after. Love the details of reality without gore.
Really nothing but if you research any story you'd find exaggerated points.
An absolute must read. This would be a great assigned reading for high school students.
Yes. The narration pulled you into the story and made you want to find a way to peak into the future.
The fluxing of her voice.
Absolutely. But at other times I wanted to chew on what I had heard to try to figure out what would happen next.
This was an excellent example of how God's plan comes together. We are the ones who mess up His timing because of our own desires. But, He is so awesome, in that, when He wants to bless us - He does! I love it when He looks beyond my humanity and showers me with His grace and mercy. Amen
I didn't read the printed version, so I can''t honestly answer that. However, the reading was soothing, but not to theatrical. The narration and music was very fitting.
Loved the relationships (parents/daughter, daughter/boyfriend). Also, it was CLEAN. No fornication and the boyfriend was a true friend who not only respected her, but respected her parents.
She has an excellent voice. She was able to variate it and was on point with each character. Flawless.
It made me emotional, but not cry. However, I don't cry about a lot of stuff. My heart went out for the young lady, but she had a great support system around her.
This was not a "perfect" family/love story. It did show how you can live in the midst of your imperfect world. It showedd how the word of God can sustain you no matter what you have to go through. I would easily recommend this as a middle/high school literature read. Easily
Definitely. I'd recommend it for someone who appreciates the sacrifices of our men and women serving in the military. Not that it's a "military" novel, it is about a group of men who carefully and proudly exhibited comradery.
The effects and aftermath of serving in the millitary.
As a veteran, I can really identify to the closeness you develop with fellow military members. There are pieces in your mental and emotional psychy that civilians will never get. There were many parts where it brought me to tears and this is an absolute "must-read". If you want to understand the military member in your life, past or present, PLEASE read this.
No profanity. This could have been a good novel for teen summer reading.
Disappointment. I don't know why so many good books have to include profanity. Yet, if a student uses it at school, they're reprimanded. Not good.
