The Forty-Third War by Louise Moeri is a historical fiction novel about the ongoing polilical turmoil in Central America. This novel is set around one of the revlolutions that took place in the rugid jungles. A young boy, Uno, is forced to fight in the war for the revolutionaries. Through out this story Uno is faced with many hard decisions and hesitates to take action. If you are looking for a book with great war excitement this book is not for you. This book had some fighting, but mainly expressed how Uno was faced with many problems of soldiering in Central America. Overall I rather enjoyed this book despite the fact that it moved along quite slowly. On a scale from one to ten, I would have to give this book a six due to the lack of excitement and specificity of the setting. I would recommend this book to someone who is doing a project for school, or poeple who have a lot of spare time. It is well to written and keeps the reader interested for the most part.
