This book may open your eyes to many things including our war heroes and the trauma associated with serving. Excellent read.
well written and allows the reader to form their own opinion..how ever you may need to go back and re-read a section or two..to come to their your conclusion...a powerful message lies within this book..you need to decipher it to form your opinion..
For the reader to appreciate the current relevance of this book it is only a matter of reading or knowing someone who has been affected by our wars overseas. It also applies to anyone who's world has been upended seriously enough that their normal points of reference in the world and in themselves are erased. Whether the main character is living in a trauma induced dissociative state or in a transcendent state of awareness is something the reader will have to reflect on during and after the reading of this book. As a professional in trauma recovery it's a powerful read in building empathy for our returning veterans and others in our community who's lives have been flooded or pierced by an overload to their hears and minds.
