This third book in Barker's trilogy has garnered the most accolades, inclduing winning the Booker Prize. However, I still think that "Regeneration" is the best of the three.
I loved the first in this series. The second in the series left a lot to be desired. The third and final, having been raved about and won awards, was highly anticipated. Sadly a disappointment.
The book feels like a number of random remembrances by the central characters. They join up now and then, but basically their lives and stories are independent. The story line, and the characters, seem to lack emotion and substance, ambling from one scene to the next.
I'm following, but it's an apathetic journey.

While this is the book in the Regeneration trilogy that won Barker the awards, I think it is the weakest...but definitely worth reading if you have read the earlier two (Regeneration and The Eye in the Door).
"An amazing finish to this trilogy"
A brilliant look at the effects of that terrible war on all that participated. Wonderful detail and characters.
I recommend the whole 3 books. They are very moving. I listened to the book now twice.
