Pat Barker's Toby's Room is a harrowing account of war's consequences for those who fight, those who are wounded, and their families back home. I found this far more powerful than its predecessor, Life Class. Filled with specific details, including historical figures of World War I, its truths are as contemporary as today's headlines. Read this before encouraging our leaders to take us into yet another war.

I bought this book on the recommendation of a friend who's reading tastes I respect highly. I found the main character (Toby's sister who's name I can't remember) to be a totally unlikeable person, not unlikeable in an interesting manner, but just plain unlikeable. I could never get into the book (although I tried) an gave up after about 80 pages and ended up giving the book to the local library for their annual book sale.

This excellent book is a sequal to the excellent "Life Class", filling in the lives of the same cast of characters. Unusually, the first portion of "Toby's Room" is actually a prequil to Life Class, outlining the lives of the characters before World War I. The bulk of the book then follows their lives at in the later stages of the war, with events taking place after those of "Life Class". Given this book as a gift, I went out and got "Life Class" and read it first. I would recommend this to all, and do not know if "Toby's Room" would be as enjoyable to those unfamiliar with the first novel.
