Still a good read. Goes into a lot of emmotions and thoughts of someone going to battle.

This is a well written novel of a young man in the depths of a civil war. Descriptions throughout the book show a war torn nation and the man horrors of war. It was hard to follow manly because the names of the characters and words used to describe them were used interchangably. The youth as he is often called leaves his mother for a world he would never forget. Great read but hard to follow.

Do not buy this version. We got it and it shows no contents, it says page 1 and a ton of numbers.  It also says that the book is 388 pages but the real book is supposed to be around 140 pages.  I do not know whats up with this version but don't buy it buy a Harper Collin's version or something else.
