Couldn't get past page 40
I know that many people think this is a heartwarming book, and a great story. That's why I really, honestly, tried to read it through. I knew there had to be a good story somewhere. However, I couldn't get past the awful dialog. I think the story would have been much better served if the author had not tried to make it "read like a novel," and had invested some more time into researching the era, and less into idolizing his father.
The final straw was the scene when the main character finds out about the bombing of Pearl Harbor. It was just too trite.
