I could see this book being studied and critiqued in a college literature class based solely upon its effective, unique writing style. The book is non-fiction, but you'll find yourself being captivated and lured into, and back out of, the unbelievable, insane narrative.
The writer uses repetition and metaphors to show how war warps the individual mind. It reminded me, in style and content, of Joseph Heller's "Catch 22."
In addition, Bryan Cranston did an outstanding job reading the piece. I had read this book in paperback, and gained much by listening to his performance.
